I'm using Lucida, which matches most text fonts much better (in terms 
of weight) than CM. It's a nice and extensive set; for example, it 
contains bold math italic which is needed (for vector -- implying bold 
-- variables -- implying italic --) for the journals I submit papers 
to. However, it's not free.
