There are many questions on this site about making the fonts in Mathematica commensurate with the default Computer modern font in $ \rm\LaTeX $. I'm not interested in complex workarounds, using the wonderful MaTeX package and such because
FontFamily ->"Times" is (almost) adequate. There is really just one single character that causes my problems: a.
Notice in this short example that the a in the Mathematica figure differs significantly from the a in $ \rm\LaTeX $. My ideal solution would be some way to replace the a in the Mathematica
Times font with one that matches Computer modern's.
Of course in the long run, we all desperately urge WRI to incorporate Computer modern naturally into their font list. (Frankly, I think it should be their default font.)
I don't think CMU seriph is appropriate, since it has the same (big loop) a as Mathematica, as this screenshot of the CMU seriph download page shows:
