This works (although I would have thought there's a better way); I got it by
looking at symbols-a4.pdf (which lists all fonts and symbols available and
can be found on CTAN).  Of course, you will need to extend the \let's to
cover all (lower-case) letters.


This would be best implemented by creating upmath.sty as follows:


and then putting \usepackage{upmath.sty} in your documents.

Phil Parker gave the simple answer - there are others: use a two-column
layout with left flush on the left and right flush on the right; use tabular
with \tabcolsep=0pt and two columns (ditto) ...  These would be more quickly
altered if it became necessary.

Let me comment that the question suggests a little light manual reading
might be in order.  No offence, please.
