RE: Coexisting 2.8 with 2.4

Aha!  Not "ecmr" but "ecrm".  I.e., the default seems to be ecrm10, slightly
different than cmr10.  Found the available list by searching for *.tfm
files.

Another year to find the 2.8 equivalent?

The attached pdf shows the 2.4 default font set and cmr10.  Doesn't seem to
be any ecmr10, at least not with \override TextScript #'font-name =
#"ecmr10"

The fonts in 2.4 belonged to the European Computer Modern family, i.e.
a version of cmr extended with all Latin1 characters.
For lyrics, the bold-narrow version was used, but for text scripts and
titling it was ecmr as far as I can remember, so it should be identical to
cmr.
