Use TimesCE Base et al.  Look at data/latin2.ld - it defines latin2
fonts with CE suffix.

But be warned that unless you have fonts with real latin2 glyphs you
will need to tweak font/*+ files to add composites for polish letters.
It seems that those extra metrics were sumbitted by a Czech person, so
they cover only portions of latin2 necessary for Czech.

E.g. for font/Ti-Rm+ add to extra char metrics and build comosites

    C -1 ; WX 389 ; N sacute ; B 51 -10 348 678 ;

    CC sacute 2 ; PCC s 0 0 ; PCC acute 56 0 ;

and so on for other letters.

You can, perhaps, use accfont from CTAN to automate the process,
somewhat.  Though I would suggest to invest some work into placing
accents manually.  Fortunately you can look at existing composites for
similarly shaped letters - e.g. the sacute example above is written
with existing acute composite in Times-Roman used as a pattern.  You
can even automate this process with a perl script.

Don't forget to submit your Polish extra metrics to Jeff for inclusion
in next release ;-).

Hope this helps.
