There are several suggested combinations of fonts in the `LaTeX  
Preamble - Font choices.tex' document found in the `Templates and  
Macros/More/' folder in your TeXShop folder. I believe these were  
collected by Will Robertson. You really should try some of these  
combinations in a document and print each out so you can see the  
differences for yourself.

Also see the psnfss documentation, psnfss2e.pdf, found in `/usr/local/ 
teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/latex/psnfss/' (or substitute `/Library/ 
teTeX/' for `/usr/local/teTeX/' above --- it is a symbolic link to  
the same place). The mathptmx package noted above by Bruno Voisin  
uses Times for maths and text and will match the Times New Roman you  
used in Intaglio.

Good Luck,
