Thanks - that is absolutely what I wanted. I had got part of the way to
understanding how to apply the 16 byte key to the opening bytes of the
.odttf, but in fact the answer is easier than I imagined. I like the way
they refer to the fontkey as 'obfuscation'.
I am just surprised that I could pick up no reference to ECMA either from
the Office site or by googling.
