Have you ever wanted to use TeX fonts in Mathematica or edit/label Mathematica graphics using TeX fonts? I have just completed an update of my (shareware) ComputerModern and FauxTeX fonts for Macintosh, available as PostScript Type 1 or TrueType. The ComputerModern fonts are standard Macintosh versions of several of the common TeX fonts: Computer Modern Regular, Italic, Slant, ExtraBold, ExtraBold Italic; Computer Modern Sans and Sans ExtraBold; Computer Modern Small Caps and Extra Bold Small Caps; Computer Modern TeleType, TeleType Mono, TeleType Mono Italic, and TeleType Mono Slant. These include all the usual accented and special characters found in most Mac fonts. FauxTeX is a set of three fonts that includes an alternative Symbol font (``Cymbol") made with Computer Modern Greek letters and ``KahoeTech," a font that lets you easily type expressions with sub- and superscripts in any application. A Windows version is in the works. For more information and a sample PDF created from a Mathematica notebook, visit http://home.earthlink.net/~slhollis/fonts.
