Deprecated and limited. What you should use:

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} % encoding stuff
\usepackage{textcomp}    % more encoding stuff
\usepackage{mathptmx}    % times for seriffed text
                          % combined with symbol and cmsy for math
% \usepackage{mathpazo}    % same as above
%                          % with palatino instead of times
\usepackage[scaled=.92]{helvet} % helvetica for sans-seriffed text
\usepackage{courier}     % courier for monospaced text

See /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/latex/psnfss/psnfss2e.pdf.

The font got this way (and with the times package as well) should be  
PostScript, not TrueType.
