excellent. I do have one question though (see below).

Regarding the esstix font. Where exactly does one install all the files
associated with this font? What command do I use to access the blackboard
fonts -- is it the same command as is used in AMS-LaTeX, i.e., \mathbb?
Since it looks like the esstix font might act as a complete replacement for
the additional fonts in AMS-LaTeX, can we simply load AMS-LaTeX via (without

If not, how do I access all these other esstix fonts?

Thank you,
