Appears to be war between fonts. That mean base is same, there is some
difference in polishing, which normal user may not be able to
visualise or appreciate.

What about comparison of `Computer Modern Roman' and `Times [new]
Roman'. Popularity wise, quality wise, licensing wise? What experts
have views about these two?
In `Computer Modern Roman' when `f' comes with `l', then combined
sometimes appers to be `A'., while `f' with `i' appears to be
wonderful. Would any one like to share his/ her view. Before you say
anything, I want to share with you that my esthetic sense is so so ;-)
