Hi Bean,

I have updated the font format document [1].  The following are the main
changes I made:

* Added information on sections FAMI, WEIG, SLAN, PTSZ.  These are used
  to do intelligent font substitution, and later may be used to
  programmatically request the bold version of a font, or a larger size
  of the same font, etc.

* Fixed incorrect statement of font metric value data types:  The
  document previously stated uint32be, when in fact they are stored as
  16-bit values (uint16be).

* Added a comment to the effect that grub-mkfont will take the place of
  the Java font converter.
