The (free) Computer Modern fonts are mainly intended for use within
TeX.  If you want to use a font that looks like Computer Modern, but
is a general purpose font, I'd recommend the European Modern fonts
>From Y&Y. They do cost money, but then so does Framemaker and so do
other quality fonts.

But, I'm curious as to why you would want to use Computer Modern in
the first place. Personally, I'd not use Computer Modern (except
perhaps CMTT) unless I absolutely had to.


P.S. When sending e-mail, it helps to set a meaninful subject line.
Also, it probably would have helped to give details on the exact error
message from Framemaker and the font in question -- remember, we aren't
(necessarily) Framemaker experts here.
