That's obsolete, I believe. Use mathptmx instead if it's supported by
your tex distribution. You may have to add helv.sty to that if you need
Helvetica as your sans.

Unfortunately, the FAQ doesn't have a good answer on this, closest is:
your tex distribution should include fntguide which has the answer in
it, or do a search or download
You may want to think in terms of bp (PostScript points) instead of pt
(Printer's points though)
