The Andika font used (for the Western languages) in TuxMath/TuxType was 
specifically chosen because it is ‘designed especially for literacy use, 
taking into account the needs of beginning readers [with] focus […] on clear, 
easy-to-perceive letterforms that will not be readily confused with one 

It would be a really bad idea to remove it and replace it with the default 
font in Pango.
