Computer Modern Bright is a family of well-legible, unobtrusive sans
serif fonts, particularly destined for use with TeX. The typefaces have
been originally designed by Walter Schmidt in the METAFONT format.
Beside text and text companion fonts, CM Bright includes a full set of
math fonts so as to support all mathematical typesetting capabilities of
TeX. Furthermore, an extra monospaced font family -- CM Typewriter
Light -- is provided, which matches CM Bright better than ordinary CMTT
would do. The existing macro support for CM Bright makes these
Type 1 fonts immediately useful for most TeX systems.
CM Bright is one of only two solutions for typesetting mathematics in
sans-serif: the other is the MicroPress'
HV Math family.
Just like the other Computer Modern typeface families, CM Bright
includes multiple design sizes. Unlike the huge number of fonts in the
EC set, however, CM Bright supplies
only a few essential design sizes, allowing one to get the benefit of
optical scaling with minimum effort and without much wasting of disk
