# [texhax] Command to reduce document equation font size (not text)

Dear Tech Support:

In LateX2e I have successfully been able to import a Treu Type font using
the syntax:

\DeclareFontFamily{T1}{garamond}{}
\DeclareFontShape{T1}{garamond}{m}{n}{ <-> garamr}{}
\DeclareFontShape{T1}{garamond}{m}{it}{ <-> garami}{}
\DeclareFontShape{T1}{garamond}{b}{n}{ <-> garamb}{}
\DeclareFontShape{T1}{garamond}{bx}{n}{ <-> garamb}{}
\renewcommand{\encodingdefault}{T1}
\renewcommand{\rmdefault}{garamond}

and the results are quite nice.  However, under the \large setting for the
entire document, the size of the math typeface (which obviously is in cmr)
is a little too large.  I can reduce the font size of the document text by
simply using \normalsize or \small after \begin{document} which also will
reduce the equation font sizes.  (the issue is that the default math
equation font sizes are a little larger than the text, so the math font
needs to tweaked a little smaller).  Also \DeclareMathSizes does not seem to
control equation font size and inline equation font size.  What is the
command to reduce the equation font size in display and texmode for the
entire document?

With best regards

Leif P
