%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% %% %% This is the file readme, part of the MathKit package %% (version 0.7, January , 1998) for math font %% generation. (Author: Alan Hoenig, ajhjj@cunyvm.cuny.edu) %% %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% The _MathKit_ package (version 0.7) creates math fonts that match Type1 outline fonts (Times, Palatino, and others) for typesetting math with TeX. It constructs these fonts by combining letters and numerals from the outline fonts with other symbols drawn by Metafont using parameters that match the outline fonts. Detailed instructions are found in the file `mathkit.tex', part of the package. You don't need to know anything about Metafont or virtual fonts to use this package. The package includes parameter templates for building font families for Times Roman (regular and bold), Palatino (regular only), and Monotype Baskerville (regular and semibold). If you choose to make fonts using the bold templates, you will be able to typeset bold mathematics as well. MathKit produces style files for plain TeX and NFSS so you can use your new fonts. ---Alan Hoenig (ajhjj@cunyvm.cuny.edu) January, 1998
