First I got the following:

, then I fetched somewhere the file texnansi-lmr10.tfm and put it in the
present directoy, and now this seems to work:

\pdfmapfile{+lm-texnansi.map}

\font\test=texnansi-lmr10\test

<<abc>>

\bye

, but only with pdftex.  No way to have it also with `tex'?

Another question: how do you input « and »?  I have no such character on my
italian keyboard, I input it with copy and paste.

Thanks
