Re: The future of cmex

The fontdim parameters of cmex are used for positioning things
in math, and these parameters do not vary with "design size".

I scale cmex10 just like any other math font, but set the
fontdim parameters of each scaled font to their default values.
This avoids the pathological looking size mismatch when one
is typesetting at sizes significantly larger or smaller
than 10pt (talk about subtlety!) while at the same time
maintaining the default values of the fontdim parameters.
So far I haven't noticed any odd-looking formulas.

But then I ain't exactly subtle myself!
