:Abstract: The `isomath` package provides tools for a mathematical style
           that conforms to the International Standard ISO 80000-2 and is
           common in science and technology. It changes the default shape of
           capital Greek letters to italic, sets up bold italic and
           sans-serif bold italic math alphabets with Latin and Greek
           characters, and defines macros for markup of vector, matrix and
           tensor symbols.

====================  =================================

The bidirectional text <-> code converter PyLit_ can convert between
``isomath.sty`` and ``isomath.sty.txt``.

The Docutils_ and pdflatex were used to generate the HTML and PDF
documentation from the reStructuredText_ sources.


This package builds on and extends fixmath_ by Walter Schmidt.
It also requires kvoptions_.

The cmbright_ package is recommended for *sans-serif italic* and *sans-serif
bold italic* fonts matching with Computer Modern and derivatives.

All required packages are part of TeXLive and MikTeX.


If possible, get this package from your distribution using its installation
Otherwise, make sure LaTeX can find the file `isomath.sty`:

* Download and unpack `isomath.zip` or just download `isomath.sty`.

* Copy/Move/Link ``isomath.sty`` to a suitable place in the TDS_ and run
  ``texhash``, or place it in the current working directory (e.g. for


Load the package and (optionally) change the default ``\vec`` macro with::

  \renewcommand{\vec}{\vectorsym}  % optional
