i responded to a message saying it couldn't find an fd for lm+(ot2|t2),
which you won't get if a "correct font" (i.e., one with an appropriate
fd file) is found.

no matter, having _one_ person read what i wrote is a good strike rate,
in my mind.

of course, you could use cmap or mmap (i don't remember which is
"better") to put the appropriate unicode into the pdf for those things.

... and that would work whether or not you're using utf-8 input, or
overriding it with \texorpdfstring.
