I am using Mathematica 5.0 in Windows XP. My Windows fonts include these Type1 font sets: Times (from Adobe Type Manager) and NimbusRomNo9L (from Ghostscript). Of course, XP installs the TrueType Times New Roman font set. The first two of these fonts are practically identical to my untrained eye. On the other hand, I can see differences between Times New Roman and the first two. Specifically, to see if Times New Roman is being used, I usually print an italic lower case z. The bottom of the italic z is practically a horizontal line in Times New Roman, but it is a wavy curve in Times and in NimbusRomNo9L. In Mathematica, if I evaluate the cell StyleForm["z", FontFamily -> "Times", FontSlant -> Italic] the printed z has a flat bottom, i.e., Times New Roman is used instead of Times. OTOH, if I evaluate the cell StyleForm["zzz", FontFamily -> "NimbusRomNo9L", FontSlant -> Italic] the printed z is as expected, i.e., it has a wavy bottom characteristic of NimbusRomNo9L. Is there a way I can get Mathematica to use the Type 1 Times fonts instead of Times New Roman? Dwynn **************************************** L.
