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.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.
