Something came up today that has me perplexed. I have a document that  
I created in January that uses:


to make everything sans serif. When typeset in January, it looked  
great and all nice Postscript fonts were used. I just tried  
typesetting it and it took forever as mf had to create all the fonts.  
When it was done, it looked terrible (all bitmapped fonts). I did a  
quick search on the list and found this command:


which worked perfectly.

My question is, what in LaTeX has changed? Why did cmss work 7 months  
ago and why does it not work now?

Thank you.
