Hi,

Thanks for the informative suggestions. Let me may be clarify the issue:


1)  I wanted a font that looks sharp on screen and will do so on many people's 
screens: I want to post my pdf-document onto my webpage and want it to look 
good on many people's screen over which I don't have control. This seems to be 
a tall order but when I look at other people's documents, who may be much more 
proficient in Tex than I am, then their pdf documents, using e.g. fonts like 
the dcr10 look so sharp. Latin Modern, however, looks so thin and not sharp on 
screen.

2)  I wanted to keep the Latin Modern look but may be that may not be possible. 
I agree that Utopia or Times looks very sharp on screen.

3)  I really wanted to save time and not have to learn the innards of lyx or 
tex on how to install fonts etc. thinking that there must be solution to this 
general problem given that Latin Modern Roman is the recommended font in lyx - 
but may be I am too optimistic?
Thanks,

Iwan
