[OS X TeX] times font

Here is a simpler question, and I apologize in advance.
I am trying to use Times fonts, for things like the "@" sign.
In TeXtures, I was able to say

\font \timesfont= Times

and it worked (in Plan TeX).
Now, however, I get all kinds of error messages, such as "I can't find file Times," 
\timesfont = Times not loadable,"  etc. 

What is the correct way to do it in Mac OS TeX?

Rees, who obviously is not referenced here (I just searched through the PDF), extended NFSS2 a bit: 'texdoc nfssext-cfr' (very short, more available in her documentation of font packages; see below). Her work is based on Philipp Lehman’s nfssext.sty (not directly in TeX Live, -> 'texdoc fontinstallationguide') that already extends NFSS2. This all is meant for text use while the font survey tries to help setup of text + complicated (or complex?) maths. Maths is the field of Paul Pichaureau's Math Design fonts packages. The same area is also targeted by Michel Bovani's Fourier package.
