Works funny on my Lucida fonts, something about
=============================================
structure       : section @ level 3 : 0.0.9 -> References
define fonts    > font with name LucidaBright is not found
define fonts    > unknown font LucidaBright, loading aborted
define fonts    > unable to define LucidaBright as \*lucida8ptrmtfa*
=============================================
the funny part is, I can get the math symbols and the lucida bright fonts in
the
pdf file, but there're no bold, italic and small caps, and the whole
document
is using the same font size, the titles aren't enlarged.
