    I'm sorry, I figured my notice was sufficient for those with interest in this
    kind of exact science support.

    I'm merely a bystander whom, having worked for a library and doing MathML
    work, experienced first-hand how sad the state of freely available science
    fonts is.

    I posted to the list since they're basing this all on the Unicode standard and
    as such the expertise here is huge to beta test this font now before it gets
    released and used.

    Hope this clears up some things...
