There is now available a set of shareware TrueType fonts for the Macintosh that mimic math mode in TeX. One of the fonts is an alternative to the standard (ugly) Symbol font. These are really handy for editting or adding labels to Mathematica graphics for easy inclusion into a TeX/LaTeX document. These "Faux TeX" fonts are available in the TeX folder of the Info-Mac archive at Stanford (sumex-aim.stanford.edu/info-mac) and also on AOL (keyword: DWP). The shareware cost is only $10. Please pay it! Literally hundreds of hours of work went into this project. I hope to produce a Windows version of these fonts in the near future.
