I see you also have one... all of which are next up on my Sunday  
afternoon reading!

Arg. My bane. Fonts. The one thing that pulls me ever so slightly to  
using Pages...
Not because I want a garish mix of goofball junk fonts, but because I  
love Palatino for newletters
and Papyrus for cards and short notes...
I figured out how to get Palatino into LaTeX, but use other programs  
(so far) to get Papyrus...

Thanks, that is good to know...

The more I look into it, the more I feel that ConTeXt is going in a  
direction more helpful to me than LaTeX. No comment intended on the  
"correctness" of either direction, just on the harmony with where I  
am going.
