Perhaps a fix is in route as I type. I'll elaborate when I have more details. > I'm using version 4.2 and Windows XP Home. I hope that's not *my* fault. I solved my font problems. Which, BTW, cannot be blamed, in any way, on WRI. It seems it was a problem arising from my 8.0 -> 8.1 upgrade of SuSE. It may have resulted from an aborted upgrade which was caused by having Chi-Rho on the MBR of /dev/hda and LILO rather than GRUB as the boot manager. It's beyond the scope of this list to go into details, but since I fixed my fonts [see: http://baldur.globalsymmetry.com/proprietary/com/wri/ch05.html ] I haven't heard a single chirp about fonts, and haven't seen a single problem with missing or ugly fonts. Even problems which I would never have guessed were font related seem to have been corrected. A word of advice. Don't do all these on the same day: Build Mozilla from CVS (and use it to view MathML) Upgrade your operating system Build XEmacs from CVS Install Mathematica 4.1 fonts Upgrade Mathematica from 4.1 to 4.2 Install the CM fonts provided by AMS Try to learn to use MathML (especially using TreeForm in Mathematica 4.2.0, it's a known bug.) > (You should include that info when reporting this kind of problem.) Well smack my hand with a ruler, Teach! :-) You are absolutely correct. It was an oversite on my part.
