The CM fonts have a rather small complement of useful glyphs (< 127
compared to the
typical 228) and a somewhat bizarre character layout.  The CM text fonts do
not have
{}, using those slots for other things like endash etc.

The European Modern (EM) fonts in Type 1 format are based on CM, but have
a much larger character set (> 310) and can be used as real text fonts (i.e.
with a normal character layout) so you would not have those problems.

They are commercial, however, see
