Where the C-i-P record for /The TeXbook/ has "TeX", the corresponding
record for /The METAFONTbook/ has "METAFONT".  For MetaPost, see the
discussion by Ulrik Vieth :

> According to an e-mail message from John Hobby, he personally prefers the
> spelling \MetaPost" (in plain roman) instead of the logo font, but since it was
> Don Knuth himself who introduced the alternate spelling, it is acceptable to use
> the logo font for METAPOST as well, if you prefer that.
