[XeTeX] XeTeX and mathematics

Hello Will,

Indeed, I know that are ranges to store the various mathematical alphabets,
but if I my memory serves me well, it seems that XeTeX has problem
handling fonts that have more that FFFF symbols and these alphabets
fall exactly in this category. But apart from this, I do not think it would
be a good idea to type something like \mathcal{A.cal}, A.cal is the actual
symbol. And that is why I was thinking about this feature meachism.
After all, a perfectly legal ASCII LaTeX file should produce "identical"
results when compiled with XeLaTeX and LaTeX.

Hi Apostolos,

The "correct" way of going about this is indeed to use unicode, for  
which we're currently in progress with creating Xe(La)TeX support.  
(Stay tuned over the next couple of months.) There are ranges for  
storing the mathematical alphabets such as fraktur and blackboard, etc.

Hope this helps,
