############ A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE FONT ############
###########################################################################
TeX Gyre Pagella Math is a math companion for the TeX Gyre Pagella family
of fonts (see http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/tex-gyre/) in
the OpenType format.
The math OTF fonts should contain a special table, MATH, described in the
confidential Microsoft document "The MATH table and OpenType Features
for Math Processing". Moreover, they should contain a broad collection
of special characters (see "Draft Unicode Technical Report #25.
UNICODE SUPPORT FOR MATHEMATICS" by Barbara Beeton, Asmus Freytag,
and Murray Sargent III). In particular, math OTF scripts are expected
to contain the following scripts: a basic serif script (regular, bold,
italic and bold italic), a calligraphic script (regular and bold),
a double-struck script, a fraktur script (regular and bold), a sans-serif
script (regular, bold, oblique and bold oblique), and a monospaced script.
The basic script is, obviously, TeX Gyre Pagella. Greek symbols
were taken from the Math Pazo font by Diego Puga with the kind
permission from the author to use his work with the GFL licence.
The double struck font was created from scratch as well as
the math extension, i.e., the main component of the font.
Other scripts, however, are borrowed from other fonts (the current
selection, however, may be subject to change):
* the calligraphic alphabet was taken from the Odstemplik font
(http://www.dafont.com/odstemplik.font) with the kind permission
from the author to use his font with the GFL licence;
* the fraktur script is excerpted from the renowned Euler family
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMS_Euler);
* the sans serif alphabets are excerpted from another renowned font,
DejaVu Sans (the DejaVu fonts are a font family based
on the Bitstream Vera Fonts, released under a free license,
http://dejavu-fonts.org/wiki/Main_Page);
* and finally, the monospaced alphabet is taken from Latin Modern
Mono Light Condensed (http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/latin-modern).
Note that the members of all the mentioned alphabets, except
the main roman alphabet, should be considered symbols, not letters;
symbols are not expected to occur in a text stream; instead,
they are expected to appear lonely, perhaps with some embellishments
like subscripts, superscripts, primes, dots above and below, etc.
To produce the font, MetaType1 and the FontForge library were used:
the Type1 PostScript font containing all relevant characters was
generated with the MetaType1 engine, and the result was converted
into the OTF format with all the necessary data structures by
a Python script employing the FontForge library.
Recent changes (ver. 1.605 --> ver. 1.632) comprised
mainly interline settings in OTF tables (HHEA and
OS/2) and the correction of the unicode slots assigned to
contour integrals (glyphs `clockwise contour
integral', u+2232, and `anticlockwise contour
integral', u+2233, used to have swapped slots).
