Yes, Sebastian, it would certainly be very useful to know what fonts
these typesetters do use for various math sorts.

Whilst on most matters typographical my fellow mathematicians are
largely ignorant and not at all concerned, I know of none who cannot
easily distinguish calligraphic (as in the CM fonts) from script.
