Hello,

I have the following problem:

A book will be printed with Times typeface.

As known, the letter "v" in Times in math looks very similar to the greek "\nu"
and both letters appear quite often.

Therefore the idea is to replace the replace the "v" with the rounded version
from the NewCenturySchoolbook typeface (I found nothing better) - but not in
the upright fonts, only italics.

This might have been done before with times font or similar. Question: is there
a script or sample available which would help (I have no intention to invent
the wheel again).

Regards
Henning
