A technical note about these files...
One of the rarest characters in any font collection is the standard symbol for "hbar," Planck's constant divided by two pi. This is written as a regular, lower-case h with a line through the h's upright side, and we have the theoretician Paul Dirac to thank for its invention. Pdf documents can deal with a few particular types of fonts, and once many years ago, I made a version of the original Mac Geneva font that had a pretty good hbar in it. It replaced the § symbol in Geneva, but that particular hacked font can not be incorporated into pdf documents. I have found, however, a close replacement in one font I have that pdf files can use. It's a bit big and ungainly, (and it's really the Celtic letter 'ruis', the astrological symbol for Saturn and the alchemical symbol for lead), but it will do the job. I have tried to change all the occurances of my old hbar to this new one, but I probably missed a few. Thus, if you see a § character, it should be read as hbar. The figure below summarizes this situation.
