:) The latin modern fonts are designed to look identical to CM but with
many more accented glyphs and an encoding that makes sense.

Look in psnfss2e.pdf
(/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/latex/psnfss/psnfss2e.pdf) for
documentation on other postscript fonts that are included in your TeX
distribution.

There are some other fonts on CTAN you might be interested in as well,
notably the Bera family and the various new URW ones.

Alternatively, you could try out XeTeX, which provides access to every
font installed in your Mac OS X system.
