Bitmap fonts are substituted in my case. Yuck!
Good thinking with using lmss & lmtt instead.

Really? I find the x-heights of the lm fonts much too small without the 
scaling. I reckon Utopia could be scaled *down* a little bit more 
actually (only a fraction, mind).

Have you tried comparing the fonts side by side on the same line?

Anyway, if you want utopia full-size, then you can just call the utopia 
package after you have the fourier one.
