As for physics journals, I don't know exactly what Elsevier or AIP
are using, but I do know that IOP uses MathTime. Unfortunately,
they apparently tried to save money on buying just MathTime without
MathTime Plus, so they resort to mixing Times/MathTime with CM bold
math italics, CM calligraphic, and a few CM-style AMS symbols.
Not exactly an example of high typographical standards, but apparently
good enough to get away with for mass-producing two dozen or so
print journals and the corresponding electronic journal articles.
