Does anyone know for sure that the small caps used by amsart in titles 
are displayed properly if the Fourier package is invoked and the Utopia 
Expert fonts installed? Without the expert fonts headings revert to CM. 
I would like to have some assurance before I think about investing in 
the expert set.

I've noticed too that \boldsymbol and \mathbf do not work yet with 
Fourier. Is there a place to go on the web for news about progress in 
its development?

I've been evaluating Fourier, and it is growing on me. I've always 
thought that Utopia could have a more elegant italic, (Minion italic is 
my favorite), but on the whole it gives a nice crisp looking page with 
well kerned text. Now CM looks a little too loose to my eye. Math 
symbols, particularly greek, also match the text font more closely in 
weight. For example, with CM the \beta in $\beta X$ looks a little 
wispy in contrast to the X, making me wish that I could apply a 
semibold to the \beta. Now with Fourier, the weights are perfectly
