Dear consortium,

Below is a working typescript for times new roman and arial (I'm told that on 
mac the equivalent of arial is helvetica, so this may be os-specific;-<)
This combination is required by Springer-Verlag in many of their books.

I have to typeset an article for a Springer volume (their editor could not 
handle my transliteration accents) that will fit in seamlessly with the 
editors' preparation of the rest of the volume. When I am done, I will gladly 
contribute the resulting style so that others who need to prepare something 
for Springer will have something to go on. Maybe this could even be developed 
into a full 
m-spring.tex module.

Anyway, here is the times new roman/arial typescript. Please make 
suggestions/improvements. Also, I'm not sure which math collection works best 
with tnr/arial.


PS. Yes, I did finally get tnr/arial working, though I've hosed my entire 
TeX/ConTeXt system in the process: in other words, victorious but wounded;-)
