I do not use CM-Super, so can people please tell me if the following 
info is correct:

What does CM-Super do for the average LaTeX user? Why would I want it?

If you want to use 8-bit Computer Modern fonts (with accents and such 
for many European languages other than English) you can use the EC fonts 
instead of standard CM.

If you want to produce output without pixel-based fonts (but scalable), 
you need to use PostScript Type1 substitutes for the standard TeX pixel 
based fonts.

These PostScript Type1 substitutes are by default available (and hand 
tuned) for the standard CM set but not for the EC set. CM-Super provides 
the same for the EC fonts. To use them, put


in the preamble of your document.
