For those of you on Windows, you can use Unibook to get a quick look at
these fonts. Here's how.

http://www.stixfonts.org/ has a link to the beta font.
I was unable to find any real information about the character coverage of
the fonts or font (the page says "fonts", you say "the beta font"). The
descriptions are _very_ abstract, except for the "STIX Font Glyph Tables",
which appears to be a huge file (and might freeze a poor browser).
1) download Stix fonts, unpack, drag to Windows/Fonts folder
2) download Unibook (beta) from http://www.unicode.org/unibook
3) create a StixBeta.cfl file (see below)
4) run Unibook, open that cfl file using File / Open,
5) Select Index View in View/Show As..
6) Check "Show Private Use Area" in the View / Show As.. dialog
StixBeta.cfl is a text file with these lines
You can change the IntegralsDisplay to the small integrals font and/or
comment out that line with a ":" at the head of the line to see smaller
integrals in the STIXGeneral fonts
If you have the most recent Nameslist and DerivedCoreProperties.txt
from the 5.1.0 beta, ( http://www.unicode.org/Public/5.1.0/ucd
can compare the Math property with the fonts' coverage.
First copied the two files to your disk,
Click on the yellow button in Unibook,
Select "UCD Additional" tab and Derived
and select "Math" from the list.
Finally use File/open to open
You can click on any glyph to see its full Unicode description, so you
can compare the glyph with the character it's intended to cover.
PS: I spotted one obviously wrong glyph right away. How about you?
