[OS X TeX] Font app. loaded but not displayed

Hello list,

I've been struggling for almost two weeks now trying to use a MS 
Verdana that came as a .ttf file in LaTeX, specifically pdflatex in 
TeXShop. I have now reached a point where I'm really stuck and I 
thought it might be justified to bring up that topic again... :)

I converted the .ttf with ttf2tex, I heard only afterwards that it 
would have been easier using XeTeX, but actually XeTeX failed to 
install properly on my system. Well, different story probably... :)

The conversion of the file seemed to have worked fine (thanks to the 
author's support), and from the LaTeX output it looks like TeX loads 
the assoiciated map file, the .fd file, uses the right encoding vector 
and finally loads the .ttf.
But unfortunately the document isn't set in the font, instead, the CM 
Sans Serif is used without a substitution being reported.

I have the following commands in the respective files:

In a verdana_sf.sty package file:



   % whatever

In the class file which loads the above package:


And in the document itself I just issue a \normalfont command.

Any hints and help would be much appreciated; please ask if any further 
logs or outputs could help solving the problem.
