I apologize greatly if this does not show up in the proper thread,
since I receive messages via digest and grabbed the reply off the
archives. (In the future, is there a way to insure this message will
appear in the proper thread?).


Obviously I am a moron.  I had installed the fonts awhile ago, but
then in a system
update hosed my installation.  Thanks for the obvious suggestion


I think the reason changing T1 -> OT1 works is when latex cant find
the proper font
it loads OT1/cmr (which is pretty) and not T1/cmr (which is not).

On a grander scheme though, has this font become deprecated?  I remember
finding it easily of the CTAN site a while back, now when I search on google
for "Tex Monotype Ehrhardt"
I receive a broken link to

Does this font have a new name or was it replaces with something similar?

Also, as a general discussion question, what other fonts are people
out there using and loving for the own notes and reports, etc?
