Partial answer that addresses: Dropped captital/number is solved by package lettrine. It also provides the small caps for Bezeichnungen:. Color of the number (gray). Alignment of the equation system (using environment alignat* of package amsmath. Just for fun I have added additional alignments for | and \in. Letter spacing of the small caps text via ...

(I made the mistake of reading the article ...) I've never read any Official Source on typography. Obviously, as a TeX practitioner (and one-time amateur calligrapher) I'm interested in typography but my knowledge is zero and therefore my typographic wisdom is based entirely on "I know what I like when I see it". I am, however, a professional ...

Unfortunately you are doing many things wrong all at the same time. First of all, with XeTeX should should never load the inputenc package; XeTeX deals with UTF-8 encoded files automatically. See Frequently loaded packages: Differences between pdfLaTeX and XeLaTeX Furthermore, if the reason for switching to XeTeX is properties of your .bib file, then you ...

Using pdfTeX (i.e., use latex or pdflatex to compile) and a transliteration for 'ancient' Greek: \documentclass[12pt]{article} \parindent0pt \useackage[T1]{fontenc}% \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}% \usepackage[polutonikogreek,latin,english]{babel} % switch to language environments \newcommand{\latin}[1]{% \foreignlanguage{latin}{#1}} ...

You can set the main font first to set the x-height; then you can reset it. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{Lucida Bright OT} \setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX, ItalicFeatures={Scale=MatchLowercase}, ItalicFont={EB Garamond 12 Italic}, ]{Lucida Bright OT} \begin{document} Abc\emph{def} %% We check what the normal choice would be ...

Remarks I reproduced Heiko's answer using ntheorem. There is a tricky thing about it: You can't wrap the \lettrine into the [] of the \item as one would normally do for theorems. I get the error ! Argument of \@lettrine has an extra }. if I do this. I don't know why, maybe somebody knows (Please comment). Implementation \documentclass{article} ...

It is very important to note that the formulas in the question are like that because: There’s one little problem here, though: The web isn’t nearly as precise as these equations. You see, web designers are constrained to using integer values for things like font size, line height, and line width (this will be the case until sub-pixel rendering ...

It is basically a bug. When querying math dimensions, we check if the current font is an OpenType math font or not and either use OpenType math dimensions from the current font or traditional math dimentions from \fam1, \fam2 or \fam3. At the time the first fraction is typeset the current font is \nullfont and since that is not an OpenType math font we end ...

From the following discussion I would say that this is an more or less undocumented feature of XeTeX. There seems to be two \fontdimen systems: The legacy \fontdimen according to Appendix G of "The TeXbook". The \fontdimen of the math table of the OpenType fonts. The \fontdimens are listed in Appendices B and C of the documentation for package ...

I installed them by running tlmgr install cowfont --repository http://tlcontrib.metatex.org/2012 ...which gave me: tlmgr: package repository http://tlcontrib.metatex.org/2012 [1/1, ??:??/??:??] install: cowfont [656k] tlmgr: package log updated at d:/programs/texlive/texmf-var/web2c/tlmgr.log running mktexlsr ... done running mktexlsr. running updmap-sys ...

As @egreg said, it is quite easy to turn a Type 1 font into a TrueType or OpenType font with Fontforge. Depending on your operating system, Fontforge will be more or less integrated, but I have successfully used it on OS X and Linux Mint or Ubuntu (on Windows, I believe you will need to install Cygwin first). Once you have Fontforge, you can use its export ...

with XeLaTeX use: \documentclass[article,a4paper,oneside]{memoir} \usepackage{fontspec} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{kpfonts} \begin{document} \section{section} \section{other section} \subsection{my subsection} bla bla bla. \textbf{bold} $v_t : \mathbb{R}^3 \rightarrow \mathbb{R}^3$ \fontspec{Garamond Premier Pro} foo bar öäöä ...

I also spent a lot of time on the issue and found nothing satisfactory. So I made up my own blackboard bold mu and alpha: \documentclass{minimal} \usepackage{amssymb} \newcommand{\Balpha}{\mbox{$\hspace{0.12em}\shortmid\hspace{-0.62em}\alpha$}} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage{graphicx} ...

(This is a more-or-less complete re-write of an answer given earlier, after I discovered the varg option of the newtxmath and newpxmath packages.) You mention that you would like to typeset your document using Times Roman text and math fonts. The newtxmath and newtxtext packages -- much evolved and improved versions of the old txfonts package -- recognize ...

The warning says that the font T1/aett/bx/n (font ae monospaced bold) was unavailable (it doesn't exist) and that instead LaTeX used font T1/aett/m/n (font ae monospaced). The ae fonts are based on the default Computer Modern fonts, where the monospaced version has no bold; these fonts are loaded by default by the sig-alternate class. Basically, you can't ...

It looks like you are using a distribution which either does not properly activate installed map files. First, your invocation of updmap is wrong. You cannot call updmap with the full path of a map file, please see the man page of updmap --help for correct syntax. The normal solution would be to call updmap-sys --enable Map sansmathaccent.map which ...

Here's an attempt; lowercase and uppercase Greek letters are upright, as uppercase Latin letters in math. Everywhere the Libertine font is used, which might give poor results in some cases, as its sidebearings are not really good for math. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[libertine]{newtxmath} \usepackage{libertine} ...

This is not the answer how to install the la-font, but maybe it is easier to install another handwriting font: http://www.ctan.org/pkg/schulschriften - it is part of TeXLive. You can get a la-variant with \usefont{T1}{wela}{m}{n} A MWE (including some other handwriting fonts): \documentclass[english]{scrartcl} \usepackage{babel} \usepackage{blindtext} ...
