The "Math" is on position 254 (glyph MathLogo1) and the "matica" on 
position 255 (glyph MathLogo2). The command in the TeX package is

Two remarks. The TeX version of \MathLogo is not not broken across 
line ends and take no care for the weight of the base font.

On Windows machines you can access the two glyphs by <Alt> Numkeypad
 <Alt> Numkeypad 0255 from the true type version of the fonts.

A small caps italic font will do the job in the other cases.
