Why? What it will do is:

(1) use Times as the serif (or roman, if your prefer) font in your  
text together with matching fonts, based on Times and Symbol with a  
tiny bit of Computer Modern, for math formulae;

(2) use Helvetica as the sans serif font;

(3) use Courier as the monospaced (or typewriter, if you prefer) font.

Nothing more.

For most people, the difference between Times and Times New Roman is  
negligible (as is the difference between Helvetica and Arial, for  
example). Which means that, with the above LaTeX code, you should end  
up with your LaTeX text and Intaglio figures using very similar  
fonts. Isn't that what you were looking for?
