README for the stix package, version 2014-01-01 The Scientific and Technical Information eXchange (STIX) font is intended to solve the publishing needs of authors, publishers, printers, and others working in the scientific, medical, and technical fields. It is intended as a comprehensive Unicode based font of mathematical symbols and alphabets. The intent is to provide a single font that can be used throughout the production process. The production process can be a traditional print one, be entirely electronic, or be a combination. The project began through the joint efforts of American Mathematical Society (AMS), American Institute of Physics Publishing (AIP), American Physical Society (APS), American Chemical Society (ACS), Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), and Elsevier Science. These companies are collectively known as the STI Pub companies. This distribution provides a new packaging format of the STIX fonts suitable for use with LaTeX. The glyph set is based on the previously released Version 1.1.0 glyph set. The stix package provides LaTeX support for using STIX fonts in both text and math. While the primary focus of this release is the math portion of the fonts, text fonts are provided as well. The text fonts are provided in both T1 (default) and OT1 encodings, as well as TS1 symbol font encoding, which cover only a subset of Latin characters supported by STIX fonts. The math support covers nearly every mathematical symbol in STIX fonts, around 2400 symbols in 11 regular fonts, in addition to around 1950 symbols in 10 bold fonts. There are also three fonts containing extra miscellaneous symbols, stix-extra1, stix-extra2 and stix-extra3, provided as TFM and PFB files without support from the macro package. To install this package, unzip the /install/fonts/stix.tds.zip archive at the root of any suitable texmf tree and, if necessary, update the file-name database (e.g., texhash texmf). Update the font maps by doing updmap[-sys] -enable Map stix.map. For usage instructions, see the stix.pdf document. This distribution also includes the version 1.1.1 OpenType font files for use with XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX. Previously released versions of the fonts are not included, but are available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/stixfonts/. The STIX fonts are licensed under the SIL Open Font License, Version 1.1. The support software is licensed under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public License. The maintainer of this package is Mark Doyle (firstname.lastname@example.org). STI Pub would like to acknowledge the significant work Khaled Hosny performed in preparing the LaTeX fonts. We would also like to thank Bob Tennent for his assistance in packaging the fonts and updating the README for distribution on CTAN.

stix – OpenType Unicode maths fonts
The STIX fonts are a suite of unicode OpenType fonts containing a complete set of mathematical glyphs.
The CTAN package is a copy of the fonts’ official release, organised as specified by the TeX Directory Structure, for inclusion in standard TeX distributions.
A Type 1-only distribution of the fonts is available in the esstix bundle.
