Hi Boguslaw!

Here a short report: The following file:
compiled with current context uses the lmmath fonts:
$ pdffonts test.pdf
name                                 type         emb sub uni object ID
------------------------------------ ------------ --- --- --- ---------
MZRISU+LMRoman12-Regular             Type 1       yes yes yes      7  0
MCWYOY+LMMathSymbols10-Italic        Type 1       yes yes no      10  0

But there seems to be a problem with displaying the result in some viewers:
Adobe Acrobat (Reader and Full) (Windows and Linux)

xpdf 3.01 linux

kpdf 3.5.5 (Debian/sid)
	at magnifications 150%, 125%, 75% 
		the the second and third line touch each other
		the problem seems that the paragraph symbols are drawn
		quite bad in all resolutions less then 200%. But I guess
		that this is a problem with kpdf
	at magnification 200%, 100%
		all ok.

MacOS 10.3, builtin viewer
	complains that it cannot recognize the file format
	(reported by Sanjoy Mahajan <sanjoy at mrao.cam.ac.uk>)

Used system to create the files:
Debian/unstable with texlive 2005 Debian packages
pdfeTeX using libpoppler 3.141592-1.30.5-2.2
	(could this be a problem with libpoppler????)
	(I will try it out soon)
context 20070123
lmodern 1.00

Best wishes
