The XITS font project

XITS is a Times-like typeface for mathematical and scientific publishing, based
on [STIX fonts][1]. The main mission of XITS is to provide a version of STIX
fonts enriched with the OpenType MATH extension, making it suitable for high
quality mathematic typesetting with OpenType MATH capable layout systems, like
MS Office 2007 and the new TeX engines XeTeX and LuaTeX.

XITS font is free, open source font, under [Open Font License][2], version 1.1.

The current version of XITS is based on version 1.1.0-beta1 of STIX fonts.

This is work in progress, feedback, bug reports and even patches are welcomed.


The preferred way for modifying the fonts is by editing the SFD files under
`sources` directory in the [source repository][5], using [FontForge][3]. When
submitting patches, please make sure they are as clean as possible, avoiding
any unrelated or unnecessary changes.

To build the fonts from source you need GNU Make, [FontForge][3] Python module,
and [FontTools][4].
