Re: Adding math unicode support 1 year, 6 months ago

Hi Sebastian,

Thank you for this great package, it is really useful for
https://github.com/tdewolff/canvas which really needs a TeX formula
shaper.

While using the library, I came to the conclusion that only plain TeX
is supported, which inherently uses the Type1 fonts (Computer Modern)
of the original TeX distribution. While building a DIV to path
converter, I came across the need to format math symbols (such as
\sum) which would need a Type1 font interpreter. Something nicer would
be to support unicode-math so that a proper OpenType font can be used
(such as the newer Computer Modern, or Latin Modern, STIX, DejaVu,
...).
