This evening I managed to read your article. Have you thought of typing 
teTeX or TeXShop differently, more like the TeX 'logo?' If you look 
into the teTeX manual you'll see a difference ...

Do you know that you can determine a font's supplier by pressing Cmd-i 
in Finder when this font file is selected? Well, mostly at least!

Have you tried to put this line into a fontinst drv file?


When you then have another TeX file with this contents (I call it 
always finstmsc.tex):

	\input finstmsc.sty
	\adddriver{dvips}{inst.map}		% this line is the important one
	\input inst.recs

and run it through TeX, what comes out? I think, it saves some working 

In the end, in paragraph 6, you need to make a difference between a TeX 
installation based on TeX Live 2005 and later, and elder ones from 
before this year! TL2005 uses 'sudo updmap-sys ...,' using updmap only 
with sudo will create in your personal texmf tree files owned by root, 
the super user. And these 'personal' files will be found first by tex, 
dvips, dvipdfm ...

You used a few times 'Postscript' which is not correct. The word is 
PostScript. Achieving so much within a few days is really remarkable!

Have you already tried the microtype package? I think most documents 
look better with it!

Here is another description about making use of OpenType fonts in TeX: 



Without vi there is only GNU Emacs
