OK, so that was really a classical problem.

Andreas: you might put that in the FAQ: if there is a problem
with rendering TeX fonts, then first check that Metafont has
the required permissions to create new fonts.

B.t.w.: a just heard from Martin Peters from Springer-Verlag that
you mentioned TeXmacs in your new book. Thanks a lot for this:
this kind of promotion will certainly make it easier to get
TeXmacs accepted as a standard format by publishers.

This is in fact a general request of mine: users should really try to
mention the fact that they used TeXmacs for writing articles and
try to submit TeXmacs documents. As soon as editors will have heard
about our software several times, it will be easier to get out format
accepted when we contact them.

Best wishes, Joris
