compare the following formulae with your favourite working bold math
setup (confirmed with CM, Iwona, Lucida here):
\startformula % this works
\sin{\frac{{\bfm \pi}}{2}}=\sqrt{\bfm2}
\stopformula
\startformula % this doesn't
\sin{\frac{{\bfm \pi}}{2}}=\sqrt{2}
\stopformula
% \startformula % this crashes
% \sin{\frac{\bfm \pi}{2}}=\sqrt{2}
% \stopformula
I can't claim to know about all the family magic that goes on behind the
scenes with bold math, but I'm fairly confident I can configure things
properly. Smells like a bug.
In other news, these will make bold numbers, if you need them:
\definemathcharacter [48] [nothing] [mr] ["30]
\definemathcharacter [49] [nothing] [mr] ["31]
\definemathcharacter [50] [nothing] [mr] ["32]
\definemathcharacter [51] [nothing] [mr] ["33]
\definemathcharacter [52] [nothing] [mr] ["34]
\definemathcharacter [53] [nothing] [mr] ["35]
\definemathcharacter [54] [nothing] [mr] ["36]
\definemathcharacter [55] [nothing] [mr] ["37]
\definemathcharacter [56] [nothing] [mr] ["38]
\definemathcharacter [57] [nothing] [mr] ["39]
Again, checked on my limited test cases and knowledge of mathematics.
I'm sure there will be unanticipated side effects.
