Last week Matthias already included support for the MathTime layout in his newmath.dtx, even before I finished the virtual fonts and the correponding etx and mtx files. I've noticed, however, that he forgot to add the size scaling code from mathtime.sty (lots of \DeclareMathSizes) and the correponding adjustments for the \delimiterfactor. Some notes on the size scalings: While mathptm goes 10/7.4/6 in \normalsize, it goes 9/7/5, 8/6/5, 7/5/5, for smaller sizes. In MathTime, however, the scaling is 10/7.6/6, 9/7.6/6, 8/6.8/6, and it never goes below 6pt, even for a 5pt typesize. For sizes below 10pt, e.g. \small and \footnotesize, the relative size of first-level subscripts and superscripts is about 85% while it is 76% at 10pt and goes down to 70% and 50% for the huge sizes. I really wonder if there is a principle behind all this, or is it just a set of good values derived by trial and error. Other questions: - Should the mathpm, mathematica and mathtime sizes scalings be made all the same, since they are all based on Times Italic? - Should all layouts with nonstandard size scalings set \delimiterfactor, so that \big remains \big and doesn't suddenly become \Big when switching the math layout? Cheers, Ulrik. *** tex/ORIG/newmath.dtx Mon Jan 12 09:46:11 1998 --- tex/newmath.dtx Wed Jan 21 00:57:35 1998 *************** *** 1877,1884 **** % certainly wrong.
