Hi Jordan, since I have produced the virtual fonts, I'm resposible for that. I have installed the fonts on several MikTeX installations and all works fine. So to Your questions: 1.) Yap can't display PostScript fonts. The next release of MikTeX will be able to convert type 1 fonts into TeX's pk format. 2.) I recommend that You unpack the archive with the fonts (You can download the latest version from my home page http://www.mpae.gwdg.de/~kuska ) on a seperate texmf tree. Edit the miktex.ini file in texmf\miktex\config and find the dvips section. Extend the DVIPSHEADERS by something like [dvips] ## Where Dvips searches for header files. DVIPSHEADERS=.;%R\dvips//;%R\fonts\type1//;C:\Math3.0\SystemFiles\Fonts\Type 1; now dvips may find the fonts for inclusion (if You don't download it to the printer) - than You must tell the configure program texmf\miktex\config\configure --root-directories <miktex root>;<mathfont texmf tree> and You must force to update the file name data base by texmf\miktex\config\configure --update-fndb You may copy the wolfram.map file into the miktex\dvips\init directory and add this map file to the dvips configuration. 2.1) Setting up ghostscript is a differnt task. And has nothing to do with the TeX fonts if You use the map, that copys the type 1 fonts to the postscript file all works fine if You uses the map for printer resident fonts You must add the Mathematica Type1 font directory to the GS_LIB_PATH (via environment and/or command line) and edit the FONTMAP file in the ghostscript directory. Contact me if Your problems persist.
