Yes, I was aware of that, but I think this is due to the font package
itself.
In fact, my problem is not to get time fonts, but to allow LaTeXiT's
users to use them if thay want to, bounded by what this package
offers. So, if it is not working in math mode, the user is expected
to know that.

Yes, this package does have an effect in maths and text mode. Great !

In both cases, it works thanks to \normalfont and not with
\selectfont which has no effect.

So it seems that \normalfont is the solution to my problem of fonts
that would be not used in boxes prior to \begin{document}

But it is. The default preamble of LaTeXiT is this one :
\documentclass[10pt]{article}
\usepackage[pdftex]{color} %pour la couleur
\usepackage{amssymb} %maths
\usepackage{amsmath} %maths
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} %utile pour taper directement les
caractères accentués

Pierre
