Donald: I agree about the CM font but the \overrightarrow macro in
non-AMS styles is even worse than in AMS styles; your redefinition
of \overarrow won't help in, say, article. And you've omitted a
definition of \m at th.

Recommending the txfonts in their original form isn't a good idea.
Michael Sharpe's newtxmath package will give better results overall.
