Version 1.01, 2013-11-02

IMPORTANT: Before installing this package, the rsfs package with PostScript fonts must be installed (it is part of TeXLive), and must be enabled.

This is a variant of the rsfs script font package and will not function in its absence. It allows the use of the rsfs fonts as the bases for virtual fonts which render the rsfs glyphs with a much smaller slant, so they appear stylistically close to the script font mh2scr in the Adobe Mathematical Pi collection.

After installing the TDS in the usual way, the map file must be enabled. For example, in TeXLive, if you installed the package in texmflocal and have no personal updmap.cfg,

sudo -H updmap-sys --enable

following which the effect of 


is to redefine \mathcal to invoke the appropriate size of rsfso scaled by the factor .9.

The effect of


is to redefine \mathscr rather than \mathcal to invoke the appropriate size of rsfso.

The virtual fonts rsfso10, rsfso7 and rsfso5 were produced using fontinst from the raw text fonts rrsfso10, rrsfso7 and rrsfso5, with adjustments to the font metrics in accordance with my tastes in side-bearings, accent placement and subscript position.

rs­fso – A math­e­mat­i­cal cal­li­graphic font based on rsfs

The pack­age pro­vides vir­tual fonts and LaTeX sup­port files for math­e­mat­i­cal cal­li­graphic fonts based on the rsfs Adobe Type 1 fonts (which must also be present for suc­cess­ful in­stal­la­tion, with the slant sub­stan­tially re­duced. The out­put is quite sim­i­lar to that from the Adobe Math­e­mat­i­cal Pi script font.
