I am using the Springer Verlag Mongraph class svmono.cls for layouting my PhD dissertation. With a preamble, i am able on changing small things in this preamble, however i fail in changing the font type to e.g. Kurier Light Condensed. What is the easiest way to change the \normalfont?

ha, it turned out that i wrote the fontenc and kurier line code too early in my preamble, if it are the last lines it indeed works perfectly ! – ruben baetens Oct 8 '11 at 17:30
