comicsans – Use Microsoft Comic Sans font

MicroSoft Comic Sans is a TrueType font that is readily available on the net (MicroSoft no longer distribute it in isolation from Windows, but there is no restriction on distribution of existing copies). This package provides metrics and maps to use the font with pdf, in a variety of text shapes, and (to some extent) in mathematics.
