You could try simply:


The syntax of this command is described (though not very explicitly) in 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/latex/base/fntguide.dvi, p. 9.

If you plan to write long fragments of text in that special font, you 
might also want to define a new environment. I don't have the LaTeX 
manual at hand, and don't remember whether the \begingroup \endgroup 
commands are added automatically by \newenvironment; otherwise,


could do the job.

Hope this helps,
