PA Math is a family of serif fonts loosely based on the
Palatino^{(TM)} typeface.
Palatino was designed by Hermann Zapf for the Stempel foundry
in 1948 based on lettering from the Italian Renaissance.
Palatino is one of the most widely used typefaces, and probably
the most popular Old Style revival in existence.
MicroPress' PA Math comprises the fonts necessary for mathematical
typesetting (math italics, math, calligraphic and oldstyle symbols,
and extensions) in normal and bold weights.
PA Math consists 15 manually hinted Type 1 fonts.
The family also includes all OT1
and T1 encoded text virtual fonts of various shapes,
as well as fonts with most useful glyphs of the
TS1 encoding.
Additionally this collection provides necessary files for
using the fonts with plain TeX, LaTeX 2.09 and LaTeX 2e.
PA Math is a full replacement for the Computer Modern fonts.
To typeset your plain or LaTeX 2.09 documents with
PA Math, just specify a PA Math based format. To typeset
LaTeX 2e documents, include the pamath style package
in the document preamble.
First released in May 2001.
Current version 1.2.
