STIX Font Set Mission Statement
The mission of the Scientific and Technical Information Exchange (STIX) font creation project is the preparation of a comprehensive set of fonts that serve the scientific and engineering community in the process from manuscript creation through final publication, both in electronic and print formats. Toward this purpose, the STIX fonts will be made available, under royalty-free license, to anyone, including publishers, software developers, scientists, students, and the general public.
The STIX mission will be fully realized when:
- Fully hinted PostScript Type 1 and TrueType font sets have been created
- All characters/glyphs have been incorporated into Unicode representation or comparable representation and browsers include program logic to fully utilize the STIX font set in the electronic representation of scholarly scientific documents
By making the fonts freely available, the STIX project hopes to encourage the development of applications that make use of these fonts. In particular, the STIX project will create a TeX implementation that TeX users can install and configure with minimal effort.
