Y&Y's market is discerning scientific publishers and authors, and their selling point is high quality math, both CMR and Lucida. I don't want to plug Y&Y particularly, but they demonstrate that you can develop and market good math fonts for use with TeX. The LaTeX PSNFSS package has extensive support for Lucida. Of course, real purists will find stuff to carp about in Lucida, and scaled fonts, but does anyone seriously suggest it isnt a serious math typesetting face? this discussion isnt going anywhere... sebastian
