I have solved part of that problem for my installation, but its a rather complicated prodedure. Look at my homepage http://www.physik.uni-osnabrueck.de/franzius/Downloads/MMA/MMaFontsMiktexEnglish.html I describe a step by step installation of MiKTeX, eliminating the old Mathematica TeX font installation coming from Mathematica 3.0. You find a Mathematica notebook to convert the Mathematica fonts to those readable by MiKTeX's YAP. And finally all fontmap files have to be recreated. Someone having the time to write a script doing the job? Would be fine. -- Roland Franzius Roland Franzius
