Hey Joe!

I spent some time of the Wiki as well, but didn't get anywhere. It  
might be there is a problem with my install of MacTeX 2008, but I'm  
having the same problem on both the desktop and the notebook, so I  
rather doubt it. (But, it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong!)

When I figure this out, if I can share I'll write something up for the  
Wiki. It is a good place to park the material and I'm pleased to be  
able to contribute.

With regards to good old CM... It's a good font family. But, I'm  
looking for something that sets me apart just a little bit from the  
crowd. Besides, if I can figure this out, eventually I may be able to  
construct a format that will mimic what we're using at the office in  
<retch> Word. ;)
