The math OTF fonts should contain a special table, MATH, described in the confidential Microsoft document "The MATH table and OpenType Features for Math Processing". Moreover, they should contain a broad collection of special characters (see "Draft Unicode Technical Report #25. UNICODE SUPPORT FOR MATHEMATICS" by Barbara Beeton, Asmus Freytag, and Murray Sargent III). In particular, math OTF fonts are expected to contain the following scripts: a basic serif font (regular, bold, italic and bold italic), a calligraphic font (regular and bold), a double-struck font, a fraktur font (regular and bold), a sans-serif font (regular, bold, oblique and regular oblique), and a monospaced font. The basic script is, obviously, TeX Gyre Termes. Symbols, namely, calligraphic, double struck, Greek, sans serif bold Greek, and Hebrew, were drawn from scratch. The main math component, that is, the math extension, was also programmed from scratch. Some scripts, however, are borrowed from other fonts (the current selection, however, may be subject to change): * The fraktur alphabets (regular and bold) is excerpted from the Leipziger Fraktur replica by Peter Wiegel ( http://www.peter-wiegel.de/Leipzig.html ) with the kind permission of the author. * The sans serif alphabets (regular, oblique, bold, and bold oblique) are excerpted from TeX Gyre Heros http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/tex-gyre/heros (actually, the sans serif bold Greek symbols are based on TeX Gyre Heros Greek alphabet). * The monospaced alphabet is excerpted from TeX Gyre Cursor http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/tex-gyre/cursor Note that the members of all the mentioned alphabets, except the main roman alphabet, should be considered symbols, not letters; symbols are not expected to occur in a text stream; instead, they are expected to appear lonely, perhaps with some embellishments like subscripts, superscripts, primes, dots above and below, etc. To produce the font, MetaType1 and the FontForge library were used: the Type1 PostScript font containing all relevant characters was generated with the MetaType1 engine, and the result was converted into the OTF format with all the necessary data structures by a Python script employing the FontForge library. The TeX Gyre Math Project was launched and is supported by TeX USERS GROUPS (CS TUG, DANTE eV, GUST, NTG, TUG India, TUG, UK TUG). Hearty thanks to the representatives of these groups and also to all people who helped with their work, comments, ideas, remarks, bug reports, objections, hints, consolations, etc.
