Thanks Herb. I will give those a try. For our textbooks, the publisher  
wants us to use Helvetica and much of the layout is now dependent on  
it. Even if changing was an option, it would require a huge amount of  
work at this late stage since line breaks and page breaks would change  
and more word crafting would be required. Of course, one nice thing  
about LaTeX is that I can make the change just for fun to see what it  
looks like. :-)

All the best,
