[texhax] typesetting algorithms in computer science

Certainly never typeset multi-letter identifiers in math italic. At the
level just of choosing fonts you want \mathrm{pi} or \mathit{pi} or
\mathtt{pi} depending on what you want or perhaps better \var{pi} where
\var is defined to be any of those, so you can change your mind later about
what font to use for each category of symbol.

But many areas have existing packages (eg for Z) and there are several
packages designed for typesetting algorithms as pseudo-code which may also
be relevant.
