Description umr5174 2005-05-24 21:08:11 UTC
AFNOR (Association française de normalisation, the main French standard
organisation) recommands the use of
+ latin and greek alphabets,
+ italic/upright and bold/normal attributes,
+ small and capital letters,
+ one default (typewritten) font plus one script font
to write maths.

In fact the recommanded script style is a French traditional handwritting (like
FrenchScript font) known in French as "lettres de rondes".
These characters shapes, taught in primary school in France, are a bit like
Chancery, but differ from them.

Some of them appear as special symbols in Unicode letterlike chart: script g
(character 0x210A), script capital H (210B) etc.

It'd be a good idea to provide an easy access to such a font in the "custom
fonts" list of the fonts dialog. Such a font should be, by default, a script
font (not Bitstream, like all the other ones).
