Hello Ron, There should have been a suitcase of fonts on one of the disks that you got with the Calculus&MMA notebooks. I have a preliminary edition, dated 1991. It had 6 disks. The fonts were quite useful with version 1 of Mathematica since it did not support super/sub-scripts. Also the fonts were quite useful for equations in Microsoft Word before they improved their equation editor. With improved font technology and Mathematica versions, there is little use for these fonts now, apart from with the notebooks of Calculus&MMA. I am surprised that they are still required. I would have expected later editions to have removed them, in favour of formatting within the Mathematica Front-End; but perhaps not. If you want me to send you these fonts then email me back to ask me to send them bin-hex'd, e.g. via Eudora. Can you receive them in this form?
