    There are the Computer Modern and AMSFonts in PostScript Outline Form
    available at <>, developed by Blue Sky
    Research and Y&Y. I wonder what it might take to make Unicode fonts
    out of these - there is probably some xopyright issue involved. But
    these fonts produce very good math results, and it seems unnecessary
    work to develop a wholly new fonts.
