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:


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:

One more aesthetic suggestion: I'd use hypens rather than underscores in the RPM names. Most RPMs seem to do it that way, so it would obey the principle of least surprise.

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

Hey - didn't notice that.
Wonder what the issue is.

Couldn't find an explanation.  I wonder if it's a licensing thing.

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

Yup - you are right.

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

The spec files are set up already for that with the NoSource tag.
Just put the source where it goes - and rpmbuild the spec file.
