This is fitting, as Donald Knuth is one of our Math Department's most illustrious alumni. The rub is I need a good single file distribution of the typeface that works on both Mac and Windows. Some outfits seem to sell this, but I would be shocked if it is unavailable otherwise. I think I am just looking in all the wrong places. I searched around CTAN, but only found the founts in separate files.

I'd suggest developing a subset archive of only the fonts needed by your templates for your own distribution. In my experience, people complain about the ``clutter'' of the different optical sizes and many variants.
