latex wouldn't realize it. But dvips gives a warning:
Warning: module writet1 of dvips (file cmr10.pfb): glyph `Eng'

pdflatex gives a warning too:

\pdfmapline{=ecrm1000 SFRM1000 " T1Encoding ReEncodeFont "
<cm-super-t1.enc <cmr10.pfb}


pdfTeX warning: pdflatex.exe (file
cmr10.pfb): glyph `Eng' undefined

But naturally only at the end of the compilation when the fonts are
