The European Computer Modern fonts are already here, he just put them on the
web. One-by-one. 600 fonts to download. This is ugly and time consuming. I just
dropped him a line, stating that he ought to make a tarball out of the whole
thing so it's easier to download.

Concerning % dvips -Ppdf blabla.dvi, this didn't do it. dvips always spits out
that it can't render the fonts at 8000 dpi in Deskjet mode and is using 300 dpi
instead => same bad output. It wouldn't need Deskjet mode, as far as I'm
concerned, but I do not know how to communicate that to dvips. By the way, is it
not that bitmap fonts of that resolution need LOTS of disk space?

The BlueSky fonts are there (standard teTeX installation). Now I added those to
the file supplied by Maarten. What I got when I ran dvips
-ulilypond on a standard ly2dvi file was a ps file with all the fonts converted
to fixed-width and, in that way, the words were overlapping. Ugly as can be. I
have no idea why it matched up the Roman fonts with the Typewriter fonts.

In fact, everything is in its proper place, but it doesn't work.

Clueless in Berlin,
