Free Downloads (for TeX Experts)

  • The TrueTeX Times Option: Using Times Fonts with TrueTeX: [timesopt.pdf, 315 KB PDF file], Describes how TrueTeX uses Windows Times New Roman and Belleek math TrueType fonts to typeset text and mathematics, with output to either PDF files or direct DVI previewing/printing. Thus, TeX documents may be converted to PDF files in a Times style (using the standard LaTeX mathtime.sty package), instead of less-portable DVI files using Computer Modern fonts. This document illustrates a wide variety of sample equations in TeX, showing their pleasing appearance in the Times Math style, and is itself a sample TeX-to-PDF document created by TrueTeX.
