      For both questions, you may also find some useful information at especially because you're
    writting a mathematical program. Instead of making your own fonts
    and convinving users to use them, you may consider existing fonts
    for mathematical programs and rendering / typesetting (AMS TeX Computer
    Roman Type1 or TeX CM TTFs from Bakoma, Adobe Symbol font, Wolfram's
    Mathematica fonts etc) as long as their licenses allow such a use.
