comment Creating a font with blackboard characters for as many engines as possible?
Thanks @mpr. I also wonder why it is not included in the main distributions. I just skimmed the description of the fonts and it seems that the only potential problem with the fonts would be their (again, potential) "non-freeness".

@KhaledHosny, oh, great to know about the BBold Type1 version. I will try it again.OTOH, its look didn't quite match the look of MinionPro or Linux Libertine, which is why I took the blackboard characters from DejaVu Sans, but, given the script that I pointed, I may be doing something incorrectly. Do you see anything obviously wrong? Oh, on thing: I want "regular" fonts for TeX for collaboration purposes with people with old installations. But I would like more to learn, of course. :)
