Dear Friends,

I found the "update notice", dated 23 January, that is appended below
at http://www.stixfonts.org/.

      STIX Fonts Project Update

      Design Review Continues; Remaining Packaging
      Issues Will Delay Beta Release

      Parallel efforts continue on completing the design review and
      resolving packaging issues.  A re-alignment of glyphs into
      separate fonts for Unicode glyphs and non-Unicode glyphs has
      solved many of the open issues, but problems with getting
      browsers to properly display Plane 1 glyphs (the math alphabets)
      remain.  We are getting some assistance from Microsoft and
      Firefox, but so far these issues are not resolved.  We do not
      want to release the beta fonts until we have answers to these
      questions.  It now appears that the earliest that we will be
      able to release the beta test version is near the end of
      February.  A further update with more details will be provided
      the week of 29 January.

      This site was last updated on January 23, 2007.  We will make
      every effort to provide weekly updates until the beta test fonts
      are released.

      Please direct any questions to the STIX Fonts project
