The font TimesNewRomanPSMT, Version 5.01, is indeed strange.  There
are three `N' glyphs (indices 49, 1197, and 1230) and two `Delta'
glyphs (indices 168 and 507).  However, this is not an error since the
names from the `post' table within a TTF are not necessarily unique.
With other ords, a TTF interpreter which relies cmaps only (tables
which map character codes to glyph indices) works just fine, but a PS
interpreter which works with glyph names only fails.
