I apologise for a question that might seem naïve to many. However, I encountered a problem and a couple of hours of an intensive research didn't bring any results. Basically, I would like to have a line engraved into a ring in the same font that TeX uses for math. I am to send the font in question to the jeweller, along with the line. However, I am in confusion as to what I am supposed to send. I found out that the font would probably be either Computer Modern or Latin Modern; but when I tried to download that, I got a number of fonts and none of them seemed to be what I was looking for. Also, since the line includes the symbols 'á' and 'š', I need the font to have these. If you could be so kind as to advise me on where to get the right font, I'd be grateful. I am enclosing the line so that you can picture what I mean. Thanks in advance. Z.

Edit: What I did not know was that the PDF output was, in fact, a vector graphic, so I'll try to send that to the jeweller instead and see what happens.

$\forall d \in days : d > 0 \iff (áName \cup šName)$

Ask the jeweller whether a PDF file with the required text printed in the required font will do. If not, ask what the jeweller needs. Then get back to this site with a more specific request, perhaps. – Benjamin McKay May 29 '13 at 11:14
+1 for sweetness :-) – John Wickerson May 29 '13 at 11:14
(I wasn't going to get into a discussion about the line itself, though I appreciate your corrections, but maybe I should clarify that the line is to be read "A day is positive if and only if A and B are united". – Zuzana May 29 '13 at 11:27
PPS: »The jeweller said he needed either the specific font« ...I'm wondering what he's going to do with the font once he's got it: use the TeX code to produce -- a PDF? Or bypass PDF creation by feeding the code directly to a Lua-powered engraving machine? – Nils L May 29 '13 at 11:43
Thanks a lot for your help. I'll try to send the PDF output to the jeweller and let you know what happens. Thanks also for the thumbs up for the romantic aspect of my question! Przemysław, I see what you mean. I'll discuss it with the other set in the evening :-) – Zuzana May 29 '13 at 12:30

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/cm/ps-type1/bakoma/otf/ seems to have many variations of the Computer Modern font. Are any of those what you are looking for?

What the person downvoting you without a comment probably meant to say is that this is more like a comment than an answer. Besides, the problem has already been solved. In any case, shame on the downvoter. – Christian Jun 7 '13 at 14:31
