Bug#469424: ITP: ttf-jsmath -- TeX fonts to display jsMath pages

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Atsuhito KOHDA <kohda@pm.tokushima-u.ac.jp>

* Package name    : ttf-jsmath
  Version         : 0.01
  Upstream Author : Davide P. Cervone <dpvc@union.edu>
* URL             : http://www.math.union.edu/~dpvc/jsmath/download/jsMath-fonts.html
* License         : BaKoMa Fonts License (not yet confirmed)
  Description     : TeX fonts to display jsMath pages

 jsMath uses some TeX fonts to render mathematical contents in web pages
 so jsMath pages should be displayed much better with this package.

jsMath is very useful to display mathematical contents on the Web
but to view such pages one need to install some TeX fonts and
ttf-jsmath provides the fonts.  The fonts are modifications of TeX
fonts (known as BaKoMa fonts) but a name is changed, for example, 
as jsMath-cmr10 instead of cmr10 and encodings are also changed from 
the original so ttf-jsmath is not a duplication of existing TeX fonts.

I'm afraid a version number is not available so I took 0.01 temporary.
I've sent an email to the upstream author about the license because 
I couldn't find any statement in the home page so I filled the above 
"License" with that of the original BaKoMa fonts at present.
