What a dotty suggestion! I merely claimed that we have other more pressing things to worry about than whether or not Fred Bloggs chooses to use linearly-scaled fonts with LaTeX. Sebastian did the same. Michael Downes has since added that maths requires lots of use of small fonts, and therefore implies a need for optical scaling. I presume he means `optically-scaled maths fonts' (or are there effects on the text of mathematical publications that I wot not of?). Which would seem to me to imply that one may not use anything but CMR (or publishers' private fonts, about which I know essentially nothing apart from their existence) for maths... Robin Fairbairns
