The original CMN was developed on NeXts where ACL and
the Sonata font came as part of the package -- I guess
NeXT paid Franz and Adobe.  When we move to Linux and
PCs, I had to make my own font (the Sonata font was
expensive, if I remember right), so I used the MusicTex
font as turned into postscript by Matti Koskinen, then
glfed.c as an editor to make that font more like the
Sonata font.  You could turn the bezier curves and whatnot
in cmn-glyphs.lisp into a Sonata font replacement, but
it's been maybe 25 or 30 years since I knew what that
entailed.  cmn-glyphs.lisp mentions make-font.cl which
says it turns the cmn glyphs into a postscript type 3
font; I think make-font.cl is in the cmn tarball.
I haven't even looked at that code in a very long time.
