No, by default they don't: the PS fonts scale of course, but TeX  
(actually dvips) isn't aware of it and is looking for the exact  
specified size (as defined by the appropriate .fd files).

Things depend on how you're using OzTeX. Things are simpler in case  
you're using teTeX's texmf tree: in that case, a special map file


tells TeX to interpolate font sizes. Still, there's no provision for  
cmex there.

Normally TeX isn't using cmex in any other size than cmex10. It's the  
AMS font distro which adds cmex7,8,9. If you look at



	/Applications/OzTeX\ 5.2/Extras/Docs/AMSFonts/amsfndoc.tex

in the OzTeX distro, then you'll see all you need to do is specify  
the [psamsfonts] option for some packages


and load an additional package


Hope this helps,
