comment Alternative Math Font
@Mr.Wizard Yes, it'll be a resource with similar sorts of information. When the time comes, I'll be happy to discuss the particulars.

comment Alternative Math Font
This resource file is going to undergo a major overhaul in a future release, incidentally. Unicode support in Mathematica mostly predates Unicode support in operating systems, and some things are going to be changing. So don't expect this file format to be future-proofed.

comment Alternative Math Font
The - sign indicates that we shouldn't be using the Mathematica fonts when we're in Greece. The Mathematica fonts are just a nightmare if you actually want to communicate in Greek, but Unicode makes no distinction between mathematical and lingual uses of Greek (except for epsilon, which evolved into two separate characters...and don't think that didn't cause a stir back in the day when the Unicode committee screwed it up, then majorly broke backward compatibility to fix it). I discovered recently that the "in-Greece" feature didn't seem to be working as expected on Mac v9, so YMMV.

comment Why is Mathematica limiting the execution time of my calculation?
The fact that it's in a button is the entire question. None of your code matters. The question could be boiled down to "Why does Button["wait", Pause[20]; Print["done"]] not complete"? The answer to which is that you should add the option Method->"Queued" as an option to the Button.

comment How to avoid font substitution with Mathematica fonts?
@abwatson I should think they'd be able to use embedded fonts, yes. But I don't claim to understand publishers.

comment From notebook,how can I change variable value with in .m file dynamically?
I started to answer this, but I gave up because the bad assumptions are just too deeply ingrained in the question. DynamicModule is a localization construct. You can't access DynamicModule variables from outside of the code contained in DynamicModule. You can't take a Part of a DynamicModule and expect it to make any kind of sense. If you haven't, you should really read all of the documentation linked to from the Tutorials drop-down of the DynamicModule documentation in-product.

comment FontSubstitutions: how do they work?
@cormullion And yes, I can reproduce your problem with the Mac v9 version (I think it works elsewhere). It does look like FontSubstitutions is not working correctly on Mac.

comment FontSubstitutions: how do they work?
@cormullion You may find it easier to experiment with FontSubstitutions by using the selector syntax form for options like this: CurrentValue[$FrontEnd, {FontSubstitutions, "Bodoni"}] . You can also use assign values by putting the CurrentValue expression on the left-hand side of an equal sign.

comment Moving From Dynamic Module to Manipulate
@DavidCarraher Sorry, I had a typo/oversight in my original answer which made the resulting code not clear. I've edited and just included the entire code, along with a slight clarifying statement about the nature of the edit.

comment Strange ::usage behavior in v9
I don't know whether to expect that people will like this kind of answer or not. Maybe this answer was a mistake, or maybe it will be controversial. And I'm sensitive to doing anything which might be interpreted as karma-whoring. But egged on by rm in the comments above (the comments after the question), I decided to put it out there and see what happens. If you thought it was a waste of bytes, or an annoying list of excuses, or whatever, please say so.
