Font selection in LaTeX
     The most frequently asked questions

Walter Schmidt


This article tries to answer the three most popular questions regarding font selection in LaTeX. Rather than providing ready-made answers, it tries primarily to provide some guidance through the existing documentation.

Walter Schmidt is well-known in the TeX community as the maintainer of PSNFSS (PostScript New Font Selection Scheme), a key element in the LaTeX system. He is also proficient in designing font macro packages for LaTeX, and is author of the mtpro package for MathTimeProfessional fonts and the lucimatx package for Lucida fonts. He maintains a math fonts web page (in German) containing samples and comparisons of several math fonts that can be used with LaTeX. Walter lives in Erlangen, Germany.
