s/New Hellenic/Neohellenic/?  In fact there seems to be some confusion
about the correct English name for this font.  Scholderer named it
"New Hellenic"; the GFS calls it "Neohellenic", but "Νεοελληνικα" is
just Modern Greek for "Modern Greek".

JBR	with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
	sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
