Re: V0.4 details

Ulrik asked:

Here is one: Penrose and Rindler: Spinors & space-time (Cambridge monographs 
on mathematical physics, 1984).

   e (base of exponential function), i, j (imaginary unit)

Dealing with quaternions, I also have the need for an upright `k'; however, 
I think those should come from the {operators} font aka \textfont0 or math

   noticable on paper.  Perhaps some rounding problem?

Probably a problem of the X11 driver. On my Linux Box at home, xdvi never 
renders the \copyright correctly, not even with the -thorough option. It 
also shows those typical gaps with the very big delimiters (i. e. those 
which are assembled of several pieces).
