A side effect of this thread is that I am now aware of the lettrine
package.  To this point, I have been using:

\begin{window}[0,l,{\yn T},{}]
\noindent he text of the paragraph with the drop-cap... text of the
paragraph with the drop-cap... text of the paragraph with the drop-
cap... text of the paragraph with the drop-cap... text of the
paragraph with the drop-cap... text of the paragraph with the drop-
cap... text of the paragraph with the drop-cap...
\end{window}

where \yn is defined as:

\font\yn=cmr17 scaled \magstep5

which works well with both latex and pdflatex and every package I
have loaded with it.

`We do not object to religion and other irrationalisms because they
provide the *wrong* answers, but because they provide no solid reason
to believe that the answers they do provide have merit.''
