mnsymbol – Mathematical symbol font for Adobe MinionPro
MnSymbol is a symbol font family, designed to be used in
conjunction with Adobe Minion Pro (via the
MinionPro package). Almost all of LaTeX
and AMS mathematical symbols are provided; remaining coverage is
available from the MinionPro font with the MinionPro package.
The fonts are available both as METAFONT
source and as Adobe
Type 1 format, and a comprehensive support package is provided.
While the fonts were designed to fit with Minon Pro, the design
should fit well with other renaissance or baroque faces: indeed,
it will probably work with most fonts that are neither too wide
nor too thin, for example Palatino or Times; it is known to look
good with Sabon. There is no package designed to configure its
use with any font other than Minion Pro, but (for example) simply
loading mnsymbol after mathpazo
probably do what is needed.
