===================================================================== The Pazo Math fonts for mathematical typesetting with the Palatino fonts Font outlines version 1.003, 17 May 2002 by Diego Puga <d.puga@utoronto.ca> For use with PSNFSS version 9 ===================================================================== The Pazo Math fonts are a family of PostScript fonts suitable for typesetting math in combination with the Palatino family of text fonts. They are required by the LaTeX macro package mathpazo.sty, now part of the PSNFSS bundle. The mathpazo.sty package defines the Palatino family as the default roman font and uses the virtual mathpazo fonts, built around the Pazo Math family, for typesetting math in a style that suits Palatino. The Pazo Math family is made up of five fonts provided in Type1 format (PazoMath, PazoMath-Italic, PazoMath-Bold, PazoMath-BoldItalic, and PazoMathBlackboardBold). These contain, in designs that suit Palatino, glyphs that are usually not available in Palatino and for which Computer Modern looks odd when combined with Palatino. These glyphs include the uppercase Greek alphabet in upright and slanted shapes in regular and bold weights, the lowercase Greek alphabet in slanted shape in regular and bold weights, several math glyphs (partialdiff, summation, product, coproduct, emptyset, infinity, and proportional) in regular and bold weights, other glyphs (Euro and dotlessj) in upright and slanted shapes in regular and bold weights, and the complete uppercase latin alphabet plus number one in blackboard bold. The current distribution comprises the printer font binary (pfb) files with the PostScript outlines, the Adobe font metrics (afm) files, and the font information (inf) files for the Pazo Math family. The TeX font metrics (tfm) files, the LaTeX macro package mathpazo.sty, and a set of virtual math fonts that combine glyphs from Pazo Math, Computer Modern, and Palatino to form complete math fonts for use with TeX/LaTeX are part of the PSNFSS bundle version 9. For those wishing to rebuild or modify the virtual fonts, the fontinst sources of the mathpazo virtual fonts are still available with this distribution. Installation and usage ====================== Please see the documentation included with the PSNFSS bundle for installation and usage intructions. The following notes pertain files not required by PSNFSS. The directory inf/ contains font information files for the Pazo Math family. You need these files only in case you want to install the Pazo Math fonts in Adobe Type Manager for use with other applications (ATM will then combine afm and inf files into pfm files). The directory fontinst/ contains the fontinst sources of the virtual mathpazo fonts. You need these files only in case you want to rebuild or modify the fonts. If you want to rebuild the fonts, you will also need the Adobe font metrics for the Palatino fonts (you can download these files from ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/type/win/all/afmfiles/001-050/001/ and then rename them with the Karl Berry names: rename pob_____.afm to pplb8a.afm, pobi____.afm to pplbi8a.afm, poi_____.afm to pplri8a.afm, por_____.afm to pplr8a.afm). The fontinst scripts require fontinst version 1.914 because they rely on features available only starting from that version. Acknowledgements ================ The fontinst scripts for the mathpazo fonts are based on scripts by Walter Schmidt for the mathpple fonts. Those in turn are based on fontinst scripts written by Aloysius Helminck and distributed in conjunction with fontinst v1.335. The package mathpazo.sty also builds on Walter Schmidt's mathpple.sty and has many similarities with it. Walter has subsequently improved mathpazo.sty and included it in the PSNFSS bundle. I am grateful to him for writing mathpple.sty and for making the fontinst sources available, as well as for his many improvements to the mathpazo.sty package. Alan Hoenig and Martin Osborne kindly tested an early version of the fonts. Martin also provided many helpful comments on the design of several glyphs. George White suggested ending the encoding vector by `readonly def' instead of `def' to avoid an error with versions of pdftex prior to 0.14g. Franz Achermann reported a bad /BBox error in Acrobat with some pdf files created with pdftex, which has now been resolved. Pablo Rodr�guez pointed out the unusual shape of \varigma in the first version. Marco Kuhlmann pointed out a couple of inconsistencies in the positioning of the double strokes in Pazo Math Blackboard Bold. The font outlines for the Pazo Math family were designed and hinted using FontLab (http://www.fontlab.com). Of course, NONE of the glyphs in the Pazo Math fonts were derived from Adobe's or Linotype's Palatino or from any other commercial font. To maintain a family look, some glyphs (particularly those similar to standard text glyphs, such as the blackboard bold uppercase letters or the dotless j) were derived from a version of URWPalladioL distributed under the GNU General Public License. All trademarks mentioned are the property of their respective owners. Changes to the Type 1 fonts =========================== Version 1.003 ------------- * Changed the positioning of the double stroke in X and Z in Pazo Math Blackboard Bold (suggested by Marco Kuhlmann). Version 1.002 ------------- * Added all the remaining uppercase latin letters and number one to Pazo Math Blackboard Bold. * Re-designed \Phi to make it better proportioned (suggestion passed on by Walter Schmidt). * Re-designed \varsigma to give it a more recognisable shape (suggested by Pablo Rodr�guez). Re-designed \xi and \zeta to match the new \varsigma. Version 1.001 ------------- * Changed the end of the encoding vector in the .pfb files from `def' to `readonly def' to avoid an error with versions of pdftex prior to 0.14g (suggested by George White). * Eliminated the space after `/FontBBox {' in the .pfb files to avoid a bad /BBox error in Acrobat with some pdf files created with pdftex (problem reported by Franz Achermann). Version 1.000 ------------- * First public release.

## mathpazo – Fonts to typeset mathematics to match Palatino

The Pazo Math fonts are a family of PostScript fonts suitable for typesetting mathematics in combination with the Palatino family of text fonts. The Pazo Math family is made up of five fonts provided in Adobe Type 1 format (PazoMath, PazoMath-Italic, PazoMath-Bold, PazoMath-BoldItalic, and PazoMathBlackboardBold). These contain, in designs that match Palatino, glyphs that are usually not available in Palatino and for which Computer Modern looks odd when combined with Palatino. These glyphs include the uppercase Greek alphabet in upright and slanted shapes in regular and bold weights, the lowercase Greek alphabet in slanted shape in regular and bold weights, several mathematical glyphs (partialdiff, summation, product, coproduct, emptyset, infinity, and proportional) in regular and bold weights, other glyphs (Euro and dotlessj) in upright and slanted shapes in regular and bold weights, and the uppercase letters commonly used to represent various number sets (C, I, N, Q, R, and Z) in blackboard bold.

LaTeX macro support (using package mathpazo.sty) is provided in psnfss (a required part of any LaTeX distribution).
