Many thanks for the link. I've been examining PMW-Music.{afm,pfa} and getting 
nowhere. With a normal font such as Times, I can use either A or "\041" and an 
A is printed. Applying similar logic to the PMW-Music font, "\045" should give 
me a sharp sign. However, I get the same error message for every character:
'character "!" replaced by space (it has no glyph in font Music Base)' for 
"\041" for example.

I'll have a look at the place you suggest and see if I get any further there.
