Stix Scientific Fonts Reach Beta Release

starseeker (141897) writes "At long last, the STIX project has posted a Beta release of their scientific fonts. The mission of the STIX project has been the "preparation of a comprehensive set of fonts that serve the scientific and engineering community in the process from manuscript creation through final publication, both in electronic and print formats." The result is a font set containing thousands of characters, and hopefully a font set that will become a staple for scientific publishing. Among other uses, it has long been hoped that this would make the wide scale use of MathML in browsers possible. Despite rather long delays the project has persisted and is now showing concrete results. For those interested in the license, it can be found here. (Note to those downloading — TeX support is not yet ready. Also, the zip file will put all the files in the same directory as the zip file itself, so you might want to open it in its own directory.)"
