Yesterday I received a message from Jens-Peer Kuska, the author of the mma3fnt kit, who kindly forwarded me his fontinst sources. Since the whole distribution is pretty large (> 1MB uuencoded) and since the author doesn't particularly want to show off the uglyness of his files, I'll just put up the file at my server for a few days for those who might want to have a look at it at their own risk. (I guess Matthias will be one of them.) You can find it at: http://www.thphy.uni-duesseldorf.de/~vieth/src/toUlrik.zip What is interesting to note is that the installation is based on on a revised version of the Mma AFM files with proper glyph names, which are renamed to standard TeX glyph names in the mtx files. While we are at the topic of Mathematica fonts, I'd like to point out that the latest version of Alan Hoenig's "mathinst" now also includes support for the old 7-bit math font encodings using the Mathematica fonts. Ironically, one of the problems mentioned in the documentation was that the `=' sign didn't work properly as an extension module for double arrows, which is, of course, one of the problems we are trying to fix in the new encodings. It appears that Alan Hoenig somehow tried to cope with the preliminary versions of the Mma AFM files containig misleading glyph names, so his mtx files are littered with stuff like \renameas{parenleft}{union} \renameas{quotesingle}{intersection} \renameas{parenright}{unionmulti} \renameas{asterisk}{intersectionsq} \renameas{plus}{unionsq} You can find "mathinst" on CTAN in fonts/utilities/mathinst. Cheers, Ulrik.
