I am having problems getting a calligraphic ‘R’ with Asana Math.

This is my minimal:

\font\asanacal="Asana Math:script=math;mapping=script;+salt"
\font\asanascr="Asana Math:script=math;mapping=script"



enter image description here

I get a script R instead of calligraphic R.

This is my script.map:

Two issues here, first you need to pass script=math in the font definition since this features is registered with the math OpenType script tag, second script R is missing from Asana’s salt feature (bad luck :)), others seem to work fine.

heh, I noticed the missing "script=math" pretty much the exact same time of your answer :-) Bad luck indeed, as you say. – morbusg Apr 26 '12 at 17:08
