TeX and virtual fonts

This problem may be better on a TeX newsgroup, so please excuse my placing it here first. I am having difficulty using (or perhaps I should say, "correctly installing") the fonts for Mathematica on Win98 for use with MikTeX and DVIPS. I am not a TeX wizard, and part of the problem seems to be that some of the DVIPS-related files in the MikTeX installation have names slightly different from those mentioned in "The LaTeX Companion". Can anyone help me please? The problems are (1) It does not seem to be possible to read the Mathematica-TeX documentation without first correctly installing the various styles, but I presume that the documentation tells one where exactly they should be installed! I have worked around this by obtaining a copy of the msymdoc.dvi file, although none of the Mathematica fonts show up. (2) Page 2 of msymdoc.dvi refers to wolfram.map, but then on page 3 one is told to put the line p+ mma.map in the config.ps file. Should this actually be p +wolfram.map with the different name, and the " +" set differently? (3) Does it matter if the wolfram.map file is in the local tree or the main \texmf tree? (4) I notice that wolfram.map refers to *.pfa files, whereas DVIPS complains that it cannot find *.pfb files I would appreciate any help at all, but if anyone is using MikTeX as well as Mathematica, advice about your own setup would be particularly helpful! -- Cheers Mark R Diamond -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mark R Diamond Vision Research Laboratory Department of Psychology The University of Western Australia SPAM AVIODING EMAIL: ... at psy dot edu dot au, address to markd Disclaimers: The opinions expressed herein are those of the author, and are not intended to reflect on any official positon held by The University of Western Australia generally, the Department of Psychology specifically, or any other individual
