Informal Math Fonts from MicroPress

New Math Solution for TeX

April 1, 1999, New York.

MicroPress is proud to announce immediate availability of the Informal Math font family. Informal Math is a set of fonts loosely based on the Adobe's Tekton (TM) family with all TeX mathematical symbols.

TM-Math includes seven Type 1 fonts:

Font Name IF-Math font Corresponding CM font
IF-Math Math Italics ifmi cmmi
IF-Math Math Symbols ifsy cmsy
IF-Math Math Extension ifex cmex
IF-Math Regular ifrg cmr
IF-Math Bold ifb cmbx
IF-Math Oblique ifo cmti
IF-Math Bold Oblique ifbo cmbxti

IF-Math includes all usual TeX symbols, including Calligraphic and OldStyle symbols.

IF-Math includes all required style and configuration files for an instant build of the format files for Plain TeX, LaTeX 2E, LaTeX 2.09, AmSTeX, and AMSLaTeX. For LaTeX2E, IF-Math also includes informal.sty style for use of IF-Math with the standard latex.fmt

IF-Math is supported by VTeX PDF backend, VTeX PostScript driver, and all other VTeX drivers (via the ATM). IF-Math can also be used with DVIPS. [Due to the inability of DVIPS to handle font subsetting properly, we recommend using the "-j0" switch to disable font subsetting.] IF-math distribution for VTeX users also includes the fonts in the IF4 format for use with the TeXpider.

IF-math differs from the other MicroPress' Math Solutions in the following ways:

Font metric files are provided for the OT1 and the LV1 encodings. (OT1 is the traditional 7-bit TeX encoding; LV1 is the VTeX default encoding which adds commonly used characters like brackets, braces, guillemets, and others.)

Since IF-Math is a full replacement for the CM fonts, no change in your documents is required: just specify an IF-Math based format.

Suggested use: Announcements, Fliers, Presentations, Web Publishing. For conventional articles, reports, books consider TM-Math or HV-Math.

The introductory price of the IF-Math set is only $100 US ($75 for VTeX users). Price will be raised on 5/1/1999.
