Thanks for the suggestion! I ran "updmap-sys --enable Map=lm-math.map", 
which indeed fixed the problem, but only after a few pk fonts were 
generated. In your message, however, you mention that proper T1 fonts 
should be used after lm-math.map is enabled, so I'm not sure if things 
are working as expected (although I should say that both the dvi and pdf 
files display correctly, even after considerable magnification). Am I 
missing something here (for instance, do I need screen fonts for Mac OS 
X not provided by TL, etc.)?

Thanks again for your help,
