As for the KD fonts, I don't know in how far they are visually compatible with CM fonts. The problem is that physicist want to use both upright and italic greek in the same document for differnt purposes, i.e. upright greek for particle symbols (e.g. pions and muons, italic greek for variables as usual, upright delta for variationals (similar to upright d for differentials), upright pi for the mathematical constant (similar to upright e and upright i). I suppose this will be getting really difficult, if you try to mix different version of greek from different families. Cheers, Ulrik. P.S. Does anyone have a reasonable sample of how bold sans serif greek for use in tensors might look like?
