I'm using the following setup for the Libertine font:

\usepackage[libertine, cmintegrals]{newtxmath}


Test: $75 + 250\log_2 n = 75 + \frac{250}{\log_{10} 2} \log_{10} n$


But the spacing for inline math seems to be a little strange:

Compare the spacing of = and the numbers in the denominator to the output with mathpazo or mathdesign/Utopia:

In my opinion the Libertine results look more uneven and poorly spaced. Is this just how the font looks, or is there something I can do to make this look better?

I agree that libertine looks suboptimal here (or is newtxmath to blame?). The "10" in the logarithms looks particularly bad, maybe the numbers are drawn from the wrong place (tabular figures). –  mafp Jan 25 '13 at 8:51
Check your log. I can't duplicate your output. –  user22108 Jan 25 '13 at 19:26
@user22108 Added MWE. It's very simplistic and exhibits the same spacing as my original screenshot. –  jtbandes Jan 25 '13 at 19:28
In my test, I added \huge; so it seems the small size is relevant. –  user22108 Jan 25 '13 at 19:34
