fonts for MathML
I'd like to know the situation of fonts for MathML.
As far as I know, to display MathML it need some TeX fonts,
Symbol fonts, and fonts of Mathematica4.1 and of MathType.
Mathematica and MathType are, of course, commercial applications
and their fonts are not free (but one can download them).
However, there is a installer of these fonts for Windows in
a site of MIT.
I think I've created packages for fonts of Mathematica4.1
and Symbol fonts (which is only a modification from a font
of gsfonts, so certainly free) at present and we have already
latex-xft-fonts package which provides, at least, part of TeX fonts.
I don't try MathType fonts which seem not so critical.
On the other hands, there is STIX project to provide free
fonts. (cf. http://www.stixfonts.org/)
But it seems it is, at most, beta version and it is not yet
clear to me that it is free in a sence of DFSG.
(Unfortunately, I failed to download beta test version.)
So I'd like to know if it is better to wait STIX fonts,
if we can package Mathematica (and even MathType?) fonts in
non-free or not, or
if we need MathML fonts package in the first place.
I appreciate any information you know.
Thanks in advance. 2008-3-12(Wed)
