Thanks you for your excellent, detailed and very prompt reply.
I have the honour of being the first post to the mailing list!

At first I tried to follow the procedure exactly as you had written.
I ran dviout without actually looking at a file because I thought this is
what you meant, and followed the rest of the above procedure.

Then, I displayed an actual dvi file, but file was still messed up.

So, I went through the above procedure,
but this time while displaying the actual file.
When I got to step 8, the file displayed properly. (And I was very happy!)

After this I exited and saved as outlined in step (9).

When I got back into the file, it was still displayed properly.

If I got back out and recompiled the file, and then displayed it again,
it also displayed properly.

If I compiled another file, and got into dviout, it also displayed properly,
so it looks like everything is working now.

One last question:  When I now look at the "Font2" tab, the "ttf" parameter
value is displayed as 1 (not zero the way it was set), but dviout continues
to display the files correctly anyway.
Why is this? (I'm just curious.)

Thanks again for everything!
