comment How do I find out what fonts are used in a document/picture?
Is there anything in the OS X or *nix world comparable to what the old Y&Y TeX dviwindo previewer did for fonts--show not just a list of fonts on the page(s) viewed but also for each font colored the characters from that font uniquely? Thus you could readily see from which font each character came.

comment Naming files for Adobe Times-Roman small caps
I'm putting all the new font files, including fd's, into my local texmf tree (namely, ~/Library/texmf) rather than into the system texmf tree created by TeXLive 2014. If I have anewly-created fd such as t1ptm.fd in my local tree, won't that be used rather than the system version? (And similarly for other font support files.)

How would \renewcommand{\rmdefault}{ptm} recognize myptm?

But surely the name would be a problem if, say, I want to use \renewcommand{\rmdefault}{ptm} for specifying the font.

@Bernard: Are you saying that the answer to each of my two questions should be "yes"?

comment how use Adobe Times Roman SmallCaps with LaTeX
fontinstallationguide.pdf doesn't seem to suffice. I have Adobe tirsc___.pfb, tirsc___.pfm, tibsc___.pfb, tibsc___.pfm. I renamed them ptmrc8a.pfb, ptmrc8a.pfm, pfmb8a.pfb, pfmb8a.pfm, respectively. I then tex'ed file ptm-drv.tex: \input fontinst.sty \needsfontinstversion{1.926} \recordtransforms{ptm-rec.tex} \latinfamily{ptm}{} \endrecordtransforms \bye but this creates only .fd files and no .pl or .vpl (and ptm-rec.tex is empty). Similarly for pfm-drv.tex. What's wrong? How proceed?

And, I presume, edit PATH to delete the texlive\2013 entry?

comment Is there a LaTeX widget for iBooks Author?
Barely! For example, iBooks Author version 2.0 does NOT support the amsmath environments such as cases.

comment Is there any mathematical blog support latex?
If you have a blog at wordpress.com then yes, it already supports LaTeX. But if you've installed WordPress from wordpress.org on some server, then you also need to install and activate the LaTeX plug-in.
