 Posted: Wed Mar 15, 2006 10:53 pm    Post subject: Y&Y TeX vs. MiKTeX with MathTimePro2 fonts I used updated fonts just prior to posting of 0.98. Initially I had different page breaks with a test document of my own in the two TeX systems. but that seems to have disappeared once I updated geometry.sty in Y&Y to the same version I use with MiKTeX. There are two other peculiarities, indirectly related to the fonts: 1. With Y&Y, when mtpro2.sty is loaded, I get messages that \vec is already defined, and then ditto for \grave, \acute, \check, \breve, \bar, \hat, \dot, \tilde, \ddot. Perhaps this is due to different versions of amsmath.sty? 2. In Y&Y, I must include \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} for otherwise I get message: OT1/ptm/m/n/10.95=ptm7t at 10.95pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found I am clearly using different psnfss package files with Y&Y than with MiKTeX. I tried updating the Y&Y versions to be the same as those for MiKTeX, but then all hell breaks loose over encodings -- with Y&Y expecting to find TeXnAnsi encodings and not finding them. (It may be that in Y&Y I have to update tfm's for Times, too. But I am loathe to mess further with Y&Y with respect to a working font configuration.)

 Posted: Fri Mar 17, 2006 9:27 am    Post subject: Preliminary anwers: 1) Using T1 encoding with Times cannot work on Y&Y-TeX. Y&Y-TeX supports Times and other fonts from the non-TeX world only with LY1 encoding. 2) Updating psnfss on Y&Y-TeX is pointless. The psnfsss collection supports the Base35 fonts with OT1 and T1/TS1 encoding, which does not work on Y&Y-TeX; see above. 3) Loading fontenc should not be necessary at all, but I do not yet understand why you get the error re. OT1/ptm. Does it help to issue \usepackage[LY1]{fontenc} before loading mtpro2? 4) The errors re. \vec etc. may be due to an obsolete amsmath.sty, as compared with MikTeX. Please, run a minimal test document that does not use amsmath to check this. More info on Sunday.

Re 3): Yes, \usepackage[LY1]{fontenc} in my test documen avoides he error about OT1.

5) Yes, the error about \vec, etc., was due to an obsolete amsmath.sty. Refreshing the amsmath files fixed this.

Thank you!
