For both questions, you may also find some useful information at
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml 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.
