There is an entire fat book devoted to that: Fonts & Encodings by Yannis Haralambous O'Reilly Using any type1 or ttf fonts is very easy as long as no formulas are involved. If formulas have to be typed using a font in harmony with the text, then it becomes quite difficult to produce the necessary virtual fonts. This is certainly a drawback of TeX. By the way, in my academic domain, all scientists worldwide use TeX, and not a single one use Word. One of the reasons is that people publish their work here: http://arxiv.org/ and submissions have to be in TeX and not Word. Similarly journals accept submissions in TeX since they have minor editorial work to do afterwards. Scientists in other domains would be well inspired to do the same. This being said, this question doesn't have much relevance to FreeBSD. -- Michel TALON _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
