U+2145..U+2149 are upright open-face instead of italic open-face. Is this what you noticed?
We need to fix some things in order to use the fonts with Word 2007. In particular, the math alphanumerics don’t display for some reason. I don’t see them in Unibook either. But the math operator coverage is great.

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).
For those of you on Windows, you can use Unibook to get a quick look at these fonts. Here's how.
1) download Stix fonts, unpack, drag to Windows/Fonts folder to install
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 available, from the 5.1.0 beta, ( http://www.unicode.org/Public/5.1.0/ucd ) you 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 Core,
and select "Math" from the list.
Finally use File/open to open NamesList-5.1.....txt).
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?
