Hello, there has been some discussion about math fonts on the latex list recently and and it has been proposed to move the discussion to this list. Since I do not know if everybody on this list is also subscribed to latex-l let me resend one of my earlier messages here. It is attached below. The mentioned file mathfont.tgz is a snapshot of a work in progress, so don't expect too much. I would be particularly interested in comments on my try at an `arrowkit', which can be found in the MS2 encoding. Regards, Matthias >From mclasen@sun2.mathematik.uni-freiburg.de Mon Apr 14 16:01:37 1997 Date: Mon, 7 Apr 1997 14:32:58 +0200 (MET DST) From: Matthias Clasen <mclasen@sun2.mathematik.uni-freiburg.de> To: Mailing list for the LaTeX3 project <LATEX-L@RELAY.URZ.UNI-HEIDELBERG.DE> Subject: Re: math fonts Hello, there has been some discussion about math fonts on this list recently, and Frank Mittelbach mentioned that it would be high time to implement a prototype of Justin Zieglers proposals for new math font encodings. To avoid duplicate work, I want to announce here that I have played around with mf, fontinst and the ideas in Justin Zieglers report and Alan Jeffreys notes on math arrows some time ago. Last week I have tried to fix some of the loose ends an pack up the things I have. You can obtain it in tarred gzipped form via ftp from ftp://logimac.mathematik.uni-freiburg.de/logimac/Dokumente/www/mixed/mathfont.tgz or via http from http://logimac.mathematik.uni-freiburg.de/mixed/mathfont.tgz It is still not a complete implementation, since most of the proposed new glyphs are missing and many of the LaTeX and AMS math macros have to be reimplemented, but it might be a useful skeleton. It would be helpful if some of the knowledgeable people on this list would have a look at that stuff and correct some of my errors and omissions. It would also be a good idea to test it on some real-world mathematical documents. A good start might be chapter 8 of the companion (can the source for that part be obtained for that purpose ?) to catch any missing symbols. Any comments are welcome! Matthias Clasen
