Thanks for the tip on getting the Glyph index by just pointing at the
glyph; I clearly don't use FontBook very much!

My experimental application is trying to emulate how a vanilla TeX engine
using Computer Modern places certain math glyphs on a page. So I'm mired
in various low-level internal details of fonts that most folks can (and
should) ignore. Hence my interest in knowing precisely what's different
in Latin Modern as compared to Computer Modern. Or for that matter the
CMUnicode fonts you mentioned earlier.
