Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Signs of Life?

I recently declared the STIX Fonts Project “moribund”. Mark Doyle corrected me: it’s not dead, merely glacial.

Well, death twitch or melting, the web site has been recently updated:

Redesigned Web Site Coming in April 2005

STIX Fonts Status Update February 2005 – The STIX Fonts project is finally nearing completion. Only a few months more of design work remains. After the final character delivery is made, several additional months will be required to finalize the character parameters and package the glyphs into a font package. It appears likely that the STIX Fonts will be made available some time in the summer or early fall of 2005.

This web site will be re-launched in two months. The new design will provide information of interest to scientists, application designers, and publishers.

Who knows? Maybe there’s hope yet …
