Here I forgot a piece without which the above instructions can't work:

	\textfont\macfam=\tenmac \scriptfont\macfam=\sevenmac

Sorry. (In my original file these instructions were hidden inside more 
elaborate macros like \tenpoint, \ninepoint and  \eightpoint similar to 
those in the TeXbook pp. 414--415.)
