The bidirectional text <-> code converter PyLit can convert between isomath.sty and isomath.sty.txt.

The Python Docutils and pdflatex were used to generate the HTML and PDF documentation.


This package builds on and extends fixmath by Walter Schmidt. It also requires kvoptions.

The cmbright package is recommended for sans-serif italic and sans-serif bold italic fonts matching with Computer Modern and derivatives.

All required packages are part of TeXLive and MikTeX.


Usage Example

Use cmbright for the sans-serif math alphabets and redefine the \vec macro to typeset its argument in bold italic:


More examples and usage hints are in the documentation files.
