The TeX Computer Modern fonts are available in a variety of forms: Y&Y has commercial versions. BaKoMa and Paradissa are free(?) versions, available on CTAN (<ftp://ftp.tex.ac.uk/>, <ftp://ftp.dante.de/>, and <ftp://ftp.shsu.edu/> are the canonical sites and <http://jasper.ora.com/ctan.html> is a nice WWW interface into them) As far as super/sub-scripts, changing fonts midstream, and all the rest involved in making publication quality plots: I gave up on Mma a long time ago. I now use Mma for exploratory analysis of my equations and calculation of characteristic curves; I then shunt those curves over to Igor Pro on a PMac for proper plotting. I made this rather drastic shift after a hellish night of trying to get plots ready for a conference, where I had to resort to literal cutting and pasting to get what I wanted. Never again! For the life of me, I do not understand the pathological fear of proper text handling that is clearly possessed by anyone who's even thought of programming a plotting package. Mathematica sucks, Kaleidagraph sucks, every package I've ever seen on a PC sucks... for that matter, Igor sucks; it just sucks less than the rest. __________________________________________________________________ Jonathan E.
