Does anyone have some information on whether upright lower case Greek (regular weight) is ever used in math? I know it used by physicists for elementary particles, but I haven't seen it in math. Also, the bold upright lower case Greek is used for vectors (I suppose in anology with math italic becoming upright bold when we turn a symbol into one denoting a vector). But regular weight upright lower case Greek? Mike Spivak felt strongly that this was an abomination, and so MathTime has only bold upright lower case Greek (and heavy). Although there is separate font with upright lower case regular weight Greek meant for the physicists (which curiously is not meant to be used in math or for Greek text). Chuck Bigelow followed more the model of four styles regular, bold, italic, bold italic and let the user decide what is appropriate (given enough rope...) Any comments? Berthold.
