That will allow you to easily try a number of free Fraktur, calligraphic, script, and blackboard fonts to go along with Minion. I found for example that boondoxo or boondox (fancy script) go well with Minion. Michael includes good documentation with the package.

Since I am using it for my own notes, I find it amusing to use "mathlf" so that old style numbers are used in the text (but not in math where the letter "o" and the number "0" are easily confused). For script I am using "rsfso": to me, the "S" --which I use frequently-- is more legible than in other fonts, although "T" could be easily confused with "I".

Anyway, I don't like much the math "v" which is very similar to "\nu".
