comic­sans – Use Mi­crosoft Comic Sans font

Mi­croSoft Comic Sans is a TrueType font that is read­ily avail­able on the net (Mi­croSoft no longer dis­tribute it in iso­la­tion from Win­dows, but there is no re­stric­tion on dis­tri­bu­tion of ex­ist­ing copies). This pack­age pro­vides met­rics and maps to use the font with pdf, in a va­ri­ety of text shapes, and (to some ex­tent) in math­e­mat­ics.
