type1cm – Arbitrary size font selection in LaTeX
LaTeX, by default, restricts the sizes at which you can use its
default computer modern fonts, to a fixed set of discrete sizes
(effectively, a set specified by Knuth). The type1cm package
removes this restriction; this is particularly useful when using
scalable versions of the cm fonts (Bakoma, or the versions from
BSR/Y&Y, or True Type versions from Kinch, PCTeX, etc.).
In fact, since modern distributions will automatically generate
any bitmap font you might need, type1cm has wider application than
just those using scaleable versions of the fonts.
Note that the LaTeX distribution now contains a package fix-cm, which performs the task of type1cm, as well as doing the same job for T1- and TS1-encoded ec fonts.
