Lucida are nice - not stringy looking, which is my personal problem with
what I've seen. I've never messed with fonts and latex. From YandY, I
presume that one just orders as if OS9, which from them means getting the
CD. Is it straightforward from that point to install with tetex et al in the
Texshop environment?
