Thank you very much for your answer, Wolfgang. I can't get it to work
with iwona being substituted.

With the example file below all math is in iwona (see the attached
file). What am I doing wrong?

Best regards, Mikael

PS: I know I first asked to have Garamond instead of iwona, but this
was out of laziness. I'd rather try the look of FrutigerLTstd and
iwona. If someone has a suggestion of a math font that could fit to
Frutiger, I am all ears (this is a font used by the university).

%%% Example file
\definefontfamily [lundfaces] [rm] [Adobe Garamond Pro][opticalsize=yes]
\definefontfamily [lundfaces] [ss] [FrutigerLTstd][opticalsize=yes]

\definefallbackfamily [lundfaces] [math] [FrutigerLTstd] [math:uppercasenormal]
\definefallbackfamily [lundfaces] [math] [FrutigerLTstd] [math:uppercaseitalic]
\definefallbackfamily [lundfaces] [math] [FrutigerLTstd]
\definefallbackfamily [lundfaces] [math] [FrutigerLTstd] [math:lowercaseitalic]
\definefallbackfamily [lundfaces] [math] [FrutigerLTstd] [math:digitsnormal]
\definetypeface [lundfaces] [mm] [math] [iwona] [default]
