New CTAN pack­age: es­stix

Date: May 6, 2011 6:59:28 PM CEST
On Thu, 5 May 2011 Michael Sharpe sub­mit­ted the es­tix pack­age. A sub­mis­sion was up­loaded to /home/ftp/in­com­ing/up­load-20110504-234125.001/ on dante.ctan.org. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: PostScript ver­sions of the ESSTIX fonts, with vir­tual fonts a LaTeX sup­port files for use as math al­pha­bets. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
Th­ese are the orig­i­nal ESSTIX fonts in PostScript for­mat. They seem to have been a pre­cur­sor to the STIX project and were do­nated by El­se­vier to that project. The ac­com­pa­ny­ing vir­tual fonts with cus­tomized met­rics and LaTeX sup­port files al­low their use as cal­li­graphic, frak­tur and dou­ble-struck (black­board bold) in math mode. The sup­port files are all LPPL but the fonts them­selves are copy­righted by El­se­vier, though do­nated to the STIX project. It is un­clear to me if this means they should now be con­sid­ered as cov­ered by the same SIL Font li­cense un­der which the STIX fonts were re­leased.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/fonts/es­stix . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/es­stix (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 . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .
Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

es­stix – PostScript ver­sions of the ESSTIX, with macro sup­port

Th­ese fonts rep­re­sent trans­la­tion to PostScript Type 1 of the ESSTIX fonts. ESSTIX seem to have been a pre­cur­sor to the STIX project, and were do­nated by El­se­vier to that project.

The ac­com­pa­ny­ing vir­tual fonts with cus­tomized met­rics and sup­port files al­low their use as cal­li­graphic, frak­tur and dou­ble-struck (black­board bold) in maths mode.
