Re: MathML fonts

Inspired by the earlier thread today on Mozilla and MathML I have put
together two spec files to aide people in the installation of the
MathType and Mathematica fonts:

http://mpeters.us/fc_extras/mathematica_ttf.spec
http://mpeters.us/fc_extras/mathtype_ttf.spec

The necessary source files (that contain the fonts) can be downloaded
from the URL field of the specfile. Of course you don't need to make
rpm's, but making rpms makes it easier to install on a bunch of machines
(especially if you run a private yum repo)

Those fonts combined with the mathml-fonts from Fedora Extras should
provide the fonts needed to view MathML in Firefox (and the pango thing
mentioned by Eric Tanguy in the other thread).

Thanks, these are helpful.  A couple of minor suggestions:

(1) http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/fonts/ recommends the Mathematica 4.1 fonts over the 4.2 fonts pretty strongly for this application.

(2) I know unzip is commonly included in FC installs, but it should still be a BuildRequires for the Mathematica spec.

(3) How does one make a nosrc.rpm from these?
