Windows TeX implementations (other than Y&Y TeX) are limited
to permutations of Windows ANSI encoding for on screen and
non-PS printing.  Macintosh TeX implementations are limited
to permutations of Macintosh standard encoding for on screen and
non-PS printing.  (This is for text fonts, non-text fonts like CM have
their own hard-wired encoding and are not reencoded).
