CTAN Update: mathastext

Date: February 1, 2011 7:12:43 PM CET
On Tue, 1 Feb 2011 Jean-Francois Burnol submitted an update of the mathastext package to CTAN. Summary description: Use the text font in simple mathematics 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, other characters in the font. Thus it makes possible (for a document with simple mathematics) to use a quite arbitrary text font without worrying too much 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, math) font in the same document. Of course, using one font for two purposes helps produce smaller PDF files.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/mathastext/ . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=mathastext (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

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).
