Hi Hans,

Thanks for your help and patience with my inexperience...

I tried your minimal file above on a new gwTeX + ConTeXt
(ver: 2005.06.27  fmt: 2005.7.4  int: english  mes: english)
installation and the result is the same, that is a PDF with bitmap  
fonts... I am using:
pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.20a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.3)

The log-file of the first run says (among other things):
mktexpk: /var/tmp/texfonts/pk/modeless/adobe/times/ptmr8r.86pk:  
successfully generated.

When I add \loadallfontmapfiles to your minimal file, or (and) when I  
input the file type-akb.tex you sent in another message, the resulted  
PDF is the same (the only thing which changes is the log-file is that  
those ugly bitmap fonts are not anymore generated since they are  
cretaed in a first typesetting).

Although it is challenging to understand the problem, I can avoid  
using postscript fonts: so please don't spend much time on the issue...

Best regards: OK
