Dear list,
I have been using the Lucida fonts for long time with LaTeX, either the
Type 1 version through the `lucimatx` package or the OpenType variants
with `unicode-math`. In `unicode-math` there is a straightforward way
to select stylistic sets, e.g. alternative calligraphic glyphs.
By default the `lucidaot` typescript switches off the alternative math
italics, but I found a way to reenable them (basically just undoing what
the typescript does).
> \setupbodyfont[lucidaot]
> % get alternative math italics
> \setupmathrendering[lucidaot][it=]
> \starttext
> $\mathcal{C} = f(x)$
> \stoptext
I only found this by chance; \setupmathrendering is not documented. Is
there a more intuitive way to select the alternative math italics?
Also, is there an easy way to access all the other features defined in
`lucida-opentype-math.lfg`? This is the list:
> alternates = {
> italic = { feature = 'ss01', value = 1, comment = "Mathematical Alternative Lowercase Italic" },
> arrow = { feature = 'ss02', value = 1, comment = "Mathematical Alternative Smaller Arrows" },
> operator = { feature = 'ss03', value = 1, comment = "Mathematical Alternative Smaller Operators" },
> calligraphic = { feature = 'ss04', value = 1, comment = "Mathematical Alternative Calligraphic Characters" },
> zero = { feature = 'ss05', value = 1, comment = "Mathematical Alternative Zero" },
> partial = { feature = 'ss20', value = 1, comment = "Mathematical Alternative Upright Partial Differential" },
> },
Cheers,
Henri
