Right, that is because standard PostScript Times-Roman family fonts lack the necessary math characters. This has been remedied in the MathTimes package developed by the American Mathematical Society and used in many of their journals. Minor correction: Actually it is Lucida Bright + Lucida New Math that AMS uses --- and no, they did not develop it. Bigelow & Holmes designed the original versions of Lucida Bright, and Y&Y revised the fonts for use with TeX, and turned them into hand hinted ATM compatible Adobe Type 1 format. This font set -- as well as Lucida Bright Expert which adds bold math seriffed fixed width, non-connecting handwriting etc. -- is available from Y&Y and Blue Sky Research. The package is available commercially from several TeX vendors (see my home page [address above and below]) for a list of several. Minor correction: MathTime was developed by Michael Spivak (at the time of `TeXplorators, Inc' now of `Publish or Perish, Inc.'). Y&Y turned his fonts into hand hinted ATM compatible Adobe Type 1 format. These fonts are available only from http://www.YandY.com and http://www.BlueSky.com. MathTime Plus - which extends the MathTime 1.1 font set with bold math, upright Greek, and script faces is available exclusively from Y&Y. Unlike TeX, LaTeX, et al, the MathTimes package is NOT freely distributable. ======================================================================== Nelson H. F.
