Shakespeare wrote, probably anticipating LaTeX and its font-behaviour:

"Though this be madness, yet
There is method in it" (Hamlet).

I have felt alike all times I have tried to install fonts (but I don´t 
like the balcony-way, I would prefer to drink hemlock). Bevore getting 
mad, I decided to content myself with the fonts Gerben makes available.
But there must really be method in it, Bruno and two or three other 
human beings seem to understand this gloomy problem…
My way to use at least single characters is piteous: I type the 
character, save this one-character-file as a pdf-file, open it with 
GraphicConverter, cut the character out, save it as pdf-file and use 
this result. Do not laugh, it works!
A mad, I know, but transparent method.

But I do like LaTeX.
