Fwd: CTAN Submission -- mma3fnt.zip mma3fnt.tar.gz

I suppose most of you will have seen this anyhow, but it may worth
pointing it out specifically: Jens-Peer Kuska has contributed a LaTeX
package and corresponding virtual fonts for the Mathematica 3.0 fonts
It appears that its functionality goes a little further than my
"mmaptm" package in that it not only provides a "mathptm" replacement
but also adds support for some Mathematica-specific symbols.

Unfortunately the distribution does not include the corresponding
fontinst sources, but I have already contacted the author asking him
for details and informing him about our work.  Anyway, it's worth
checking out this package.

Cheers, Ulrik.

P.S.  Of course, the CTAN package does not include the Mathematica 3.0 
font as PFA files, but you can download them from Wolfram's FTP server 
as already discussed here a while back.

Sorry for the delay, your message got lost in a heap of others.

Thanks for your submission, I installed the files in
