MicroPress is proud to announce immediate
availability of the HV-Math font family version 1.2.
HV-Math is a set of fonts that extend Adobe's Helvetica (TM)
with all TeX mathematical symbols.
The new version of HV-Math adds a large set of glyphs for full
compatibility with the TeX T1 layout; most important TS1 characters
are included as well. To see the full set of enclosed symbols, follow
the links below.
HV-Math includes ten Type 1 fonts:
Font Name | HV-Math font | Corresponding CM font |
---|---|---|
HV-Math Math Italics | hvmi10 | cmmi |
HV-Math Math Symbols | hvsy10 | cmsy |
HV-Math Math Extension | hvex10 | cmex |
HV-Math Bold Math Italics | hvmib10 | cmmib |
HV-Math Bold Math Symbols | hvbsy10 | cmbsy |
HV-Math Bold Math Extension | hvexb10 | cmexb |
HV-Math Regular Extension | hvrm10ex | --- |
HV-Math Bold Extension | hvrb10ex | --- |
HV-Math Regular Extension Oblique | hvro10ex | --- |
HV-Math Bold Extension Oblique | hvbo10ex | --- |
The last four fonts extend the base Helvetica fonts with extra characters needed for TeX typesetting. Rather than using them directly, a TeX user would typically use fonts in the OT1 or T1/TS1 encodings:
Font Name | OT1 fonts | T1 fonts | TS1 fonts |
---|---|---|---|
HV-Text Regular | hvrm10ot | hvrm10t1 | hvrm10ts |
HV-Text Oblique | hvro10ot | hvro10t1 | hvro10ts |
HV-Text Bold | hvrb10ot | hvrb10t1 | hvrb10ts |
HV-Text Bold Oblique | hvbo10ot | hvbo10t1 | hvbo10ts |
HV-Math includes all the usual TeX symbols, including Calligraphic and OldStyle.
The TS1 layouts that appear above are courtesy of Walter Schmidt (who is also the author among others of hvmaths and the CMBright font family) The TS1 layouts are partial, but all the characters likely to be needed are in. A specifically important ones are the cu
