Its a font package with more possibilities than mathptmx and (probably) less
quality than mathtimes (but it is free).

NOTE: mbtimes is still beta-version: please don't redistribute it...

You can download it at


All suggestion are welcome. Type1 fonts in mac format (for macdvi, oztex,
textures) are not still avaible, but they will come...
