Really?  Coo.  I take it that version's still under development and
you've got a pre-release or something?
<http://www.treverrow.com/oztex/index/html> offers version OzTex 5.2 as
the latest version.

Hmm - well, that's an option.  A question: does the above process retain
the original Metafont-generated bitmap founts?  I ask because that's one
of the reasons I want to use OzTeX, so that I can use Metafont versions
of the CM family - they look better when printed than any of the PS
versions I've seen.

It's not a pressing need, it's just that it'd be nice to be able to do

Thanks for your thoughts,
