Hello; Does somebody know why I don't get the expected result (see below) from this code: \font\iupi=cmr10 \fontdimen1\iupi=1.5pt \fontdimen2\iupi=0pt \newfam\iopi \textfont\iopi=\iupi $ \fam\iopi abcdefghijklmnop $ \bye What I expect is: 1) tex sees letters in mathematics with \fontdimen2=0pt and so 2) decides to apply as kerning the \fontdimen1, so that I obtain a row of cmr10 letters with kerns in between (texbook app. G rules 15&17, maybe), like this: a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p What I get is instead abcdefghijklmnop (in cmr10 of course) ------------------ if somebody asks himself ``why?'': I need a macro to typeset section titles like this s e c t i o n t i t l e without having to do it manually like this s\,e\,c\,t\,i\,o\,n\ t\,i\,t\,l\,e and I could find no way of changing the default kerning of a font, except making a *new* font, of course, which I don't want because I need something portable and light, if possible. Of course *any*idea*welcome* !!! Thanks Stefano Frabetti
