Hi Paul,

Thanks for your input.  Isabella looks like a good short-term solution.
Further on, I'd like to use the yfrak font [0] that is part of the
texlive-fonts-extra package.  However, I see two problems:

  1 - The package is HUGE, with dependencies that aren't small either
  2 - It's in Type-1 format, but I need it in TTF format (for SDL)

Any suggestions or ideas?

Thanks again,
