>it should. Only few TeX engines don't accept all font encodings,
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).
