The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: mathastext Version number: 1.0 Author's name: Jean-Francois Burnol Summary description: use text font also in math License type: lppl Announcement text:
The mathastext package propagates the document text font to mathematical mode, for the letters of the Latin alphabet and, optionally, some further ASCII-127 characters. Thus it makes possible (for a document with simple mathematics) to use a quite arbitrary font without worrying too much that it does not have specially designed accompanying math fonts. Also, mathastext provides a simple mechanism in order to use many different choices of (text hence, now, math) fonts in the same document (not that we recommend it!). A final aspect is that mathastext helps produce smaller PDF files.

mathastext – Use the text font in maths mode

The package uses a text font (usually the document’s text font) for the letters of the Latin alphabet needed when typesetting mathematics. (Optionally, other characters in the font may also be used). This facility makes possible (for a document with simple mathematics) a far wider choice of text font, with little worry that no specially designed accompanying maths fonts are available. The package also offers a simple mechanism for using many different choices of (text hence, now, maths) font in the same document. Of course, using one font for two purposes helps produce smaller PDF files.

The package, if running under Lua, requires the live 2013 distribution (or later).
