Just a newbie question,

If I have installed the cm-super package are the cm-super fonts used instead of cm without any specific declaration in my LaTeX file? Also is there any reason one would want to use the regular bitmapped cm fonts instead of cm-super?

Also, why would I want to use lmodern over cm-super or vice versa? The font issues are a bit heady. Thanks.
