If this is enough, what's the problem?  BTW, the LaTeX macros are
partly written in plain TeX but they make heavy use of other macros
defined in the LaTeX kernel.  Thus it is quite hard to translate them
to plain TeX.  Especially the font selection and encoding stuff is
extremely complex and if you want to have the same functionality in
plain TeX it's better to switch to LaTeX.

Did I say that I don't use it?

BTW., maybe you already said which TeX distribution you are using but
I don't remember.  This information is helpful if you don't get Type1
fonts by default.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
