I had all these installed, visible to FontBook, but none of my attempts
to use them from within my code worked. So I uninstalled them to do some
clean experiments. And I must not quite have my head wrapped around "in
Unicode encoding" yet. That means the sigma glyph is accessed using
something other than a character code of "58, that's for sure. I'm
working at a pretty low level here.

I will experiment with the Latin Modern fonts after installing them. But
once installed, it's still unclear to me how I refer to that Latin Modern
font corresponding to what TeX uses for the summation glyph. Do these
fonts have a different character-code-to-glyph-mapping from what TeX
uses? If not different, that's one thing less to warry about.
