I've just got a new MBP, and would like to install TeX on it.

On my desktop system I have teTeX installed, and have found that
\usepackage{mathtime} gives very nice results. I believed, following
Jens Noeckel's nice page
that it actually uses the 'belleek' fonts.

Now I hear that the TexLive distribution does not 'include the
mathtime fonts'. Does this mean that \usepackage{mathtime} won't work?

If so, should I simply install teTeX for now, and install TeXLive once
the dust has settled? Or is there a _simple_ way of adding the
mathtime fonts? Will future versions of TeTeX allow use of
\usepackage{mathtime} or are there licensing issues that are causing

BTW, for what it's worth, the free STIX fonts referred to in Noeckel's
webpage really _do_ seem to be almost ready now...

Regards, George Nurser.
