use of "native languages" and therefore native glyphs in math formulas is common especially in textbooks of physics and engineering. (example: feynman lectures in physics) one could write for example $\int_{\rm all\ space} ...$ or $\rho=\rho_{\rm free}+\rho_{\rm bound}$ etc. clearly when such a book gets translated to other languages, these words will also be translated and hence the use of native glyphs in math will be necessary. this issue also underscores the inefficiencies arising from the poor design considerations that underlie the new math font encodings ---necessitated by the use of Cork encoding for text (missing greeks!). hence, one would need to assign a family for *text* roman, in addition to the math roman family, not to mention the family that will hold the default math characters, among them numbers from the \rm font! i am having a font attack! sami
