Yes, the package ptms you cite solved the problem. Thank you!

In the preamble, I used just:

  \renewcommand{\rmdefault}{ptmx}  %% instead of ptm

However, as the package had no proper pmts.map file, I created 


by translating the contents of its ptms.all to become:

ptmrc8r  Times-RomanSC       "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc <ptmrc8a.pfb
ptmbc8r  Times-BoldSC        "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc <ptmbc8a.pfb
ptmrij8r Times-ItalicOsF     "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc <ptmrij8a.pfb
ptmbij8r Times-BoldItalicOsF "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc <ptmbij8a.pfb

(The package enables Adobe Old Style digits as well as Adobe Times Roman Small Caps if one has the former .pfb’s and uses in the preamble
\renewcommand{\rmdefault}{ptmj} instead of \renewcommand{\rmdefault}{ptmx}. )

It would be nice if ptms were made more visibly available, i.e., at CTAN.
