This last paragraph is rather vexing. I agree, this is "a sort of  
indication", but probably useless for the standard user. From the  
recent threads in the OSX-TeX list these days I have become  
acquainted with updmap, but the whole issue has become confusing or  
too technical. I hope someone will summarize things soon. We should  
try that the standard documentation coming with the Lucida fonts  
(both on installation and on usage) gets improved.
