Hi Gary,

 From your experience with MathTime Pro, and from the (absence of)  
information about the STIX fonts and their TeX support to come, do you  
think MathTime (Basic, Lite or Pro) will be rendered obsolete by STIX,  
or does it provide functionality STIX won't have?

I've been wondering that for some time. For years I've been using the  
MathTime 1.1 fonts purchased from Blue Sky Research in the 90s, and  
the absence of bold math italic is really limiting. But before  
investing in MathTime Pro, is this worth the effort, or is it better  
to wait for STIX which, if provided adequate TeX support, has all  
chances of becoming a de facto standard?
