[OS X TeX] Microtype & phv

I just heard back from Robert Schlicht, the author of the microtype package
and the fix is actually quite simple. Pdftex can only expand fonts that it
actually adds to the produced pdf file. Since I had the defaults in updmap
set to NOT download the Basic 14 (or 35 or ?) fonts it got confused.
Changing that option so that those fonts are downloaded makes everything

I hadn't noticed that the problem also existed for Times and Palatino since,
by luck, my test file didn't need expansion for the Serif Font.

Good Luck,
