This font is part of the PA Math Font Package

PA Math is a family of serif fonts loosely based on the Palatino(TM) typeface.

Palatino was designed by Hermann Zapf for the Stempel foundry in 1948 based on lettering from the Italian Renaissance. Palatino is one of the most widely used typefaces, and probably the most popular Old Style revival in existence.

MicroPress' PA Math comprises the fonts necessary for mathematical typesetting (math italics, math, calligraphic and old-style symbols, and extensions) in normal and bold weights. PA Math consists 15 manually hinted Type 1 fonts. The family also includes all OT1 and T1 encoded text virtual fonts of various shapes, as well as fonts with most useful glyphs of the TS1 encoding. Additionally this collection provides necessary files for using the fonts with plain TeX, LaTeX 2.09 and LaTeX 2e.

PA Math is a full replacement for the Computer Modern fonts. To typeset your plain or LaTeX 2.09 documents with PA Math, just specify a PA Math based format. To typeset LaTeX 2e documents, include the pamath style package in the document preamble.

First released in May 2001.

Current version 1.2.
