[Note 2: printing PDF files: in papers that use Microsoft's "MT extra" font for additional math notations, you must DESELECT "font substitution" in printing. On some computers this option is ON by default; it's found in the page setup item of the file menu, under "postscript options." For example, check equations on pp. 12 and 13 of Smith, 1998 to verify that they print properly.]
