Christiana: BE or BQ?

What's the difference between the Christiana BE and Christiana BQ font families? And is Christiana BE the same as simply Christiana?

BE indicated that fonts were developed by Adobe; BQ indicates the data was developed by Berthold. I have to admit that the Berthold site doesn't clear up the matter for me. The various packages seem to all include the original small caps and oldstyle figures, but it isn't clear whether single OT fonts include all of them together.

There aren't any other versions of Christiana out there; they all come from Berthold. If you want to be certain, go to the source, and make sure to get a character map of the various versions for comparison.
