I agree.  I went to some trouble to make sure the UTP macros don't
generate errors.  Sometimes they may be unavoidable, but to the
extent we can, I think the typesetting should not generate errors.

This presumably is to change to the Helvetica font.  That's not
an -ms macro and I didn't put it in the UTP macros.  If we need
it, let's put it in utp.mac rather than have everyone implementing
their own.  If everyone agrees, I'll update utp.mac and send it to
Larry.  Let me know.
