You can use mathematica fonts quite happily with the pdfTeX mode
of TeXShop, or pdftex/pdflatex on the command-line.
It takes a bit of work.
1. get the archive wrifnt.tar.gz from the MathSource archives
at www.wolfram.com --- search for TeX Fonts .
2. unpack the archive into a texmf tree.
Do this from the command-line, rather than in a Finder window,
so that the operating system puts the files into the right folders
automatically.
Also, this avoids the problem of duplicate files:
e.g. omlzwcm.fd and OMLzwcm.fd --> OMLzwcm.fd.1
This gives you .tfm, .vf, .fd files, as well as wrisym.sty
and documentation as msydoc.tex .
(as well as wolfram.map which comes with teTeX anyway
and msymdoc.tex comes with Mathematica itself.)
3. find the Mathematica fonts, in
/Applications/Mathematica\ 4.1.app/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1/
(assuming you have Mathematica installed)
Copy the .pfa fonts into a texmf tree:
..../texmf/fonts/type1/wolfram/
or ..../texmf.local/fonts/type1/wolfram/
or ~/Library/texmf/fonts/type1/wolfram/
4. run sudo texhash
Now you are setup to enjoy the Mathematica fonts at full quality.
You could use t1binary to convert the .pfa fonts to .pfb form,
but this doesn't seem to be necessary on my G4 TiBook.
Use the documentation file msymdoc.tex as a test.
Beware that there are some minor macro incompatibilities with amsmath.sty .
(These are ignorable.)
Also, some characters don't work right; but mostly all is prety good.
Hope this helps,
Ross Moore
