Have you looked at the Mathematica fonts? There are over 700 characters
in them, they are highquality, professionally hinted true type fonts.
They are free for use, but can't be sold or distributed without permission
[that's my memory  supposedly there is an official answer on Wolfram Research
FAQ page, but I didn't see it]. If you don't have Mathematica, you can
download MathReader for free (www.wolfram.com) and the fonts are part of that
download.
On www.mathsource.com, there is some virtual font "stuff" so that you
can use the matematica fonts with LaTeX2e (and I assume, LaTeX3).
