Here is the info for blackboard bold math symbols, but they introduce a new consideration (i.e., an argument) and so may require a different handling? fwiw, Alan Isaac 'mathbb{A}': u'\u1D538', 'mathbb{B}': u'\u1D539', 'mathbb{C}': u'\u2102', 'mathbb{D}': u'\u1D53B', 'mathbb{E}': u'\u1D53C', 'mathbb{F}': u'\u1D53D', 'mathbb{G}': u'\u1D53E', 'mathbb{H}': u'\u210D', 'mathbb{I}': u'\u1D540', 'mathbb{J}': u'\u1D541', 'mathbb{K}': u'\u1D542', 'mathbb{L}': u'\u1D543', 'mathbb{M}': u'\u1D544', 'mathbb{N}': u'\u2115', 'mathbb{O}': u'\u1D546', 'mathbb{P}': u'\u2119', 'mathbb{Q}': u'\u211A', 'mathbb{R}': u'\u211D', 'mathbb{S}': u'\u1D54A', 'mathbb{T}': u'\u1D54B', 'mathbb{U}': u'\u1D54C', 'mathbb{V}': u'\u1D54D', 'mathbb{W}': u'\u1D54E', 'mathbb{X}': u'\u1D54F', 'mathbb{Y}': u'\u1D550', 'mathbb{Z}': u'\u2124',

IIRC, that "blackboard bold" is just a workaround because you can't write bold characters on a blackboard, so theoretically you should use normal bold symbols when typesetting. I don't know how it's done in practice (i.e. in current math publications) though. > 'mathbb{A}': u'\u1D538', u'\u1D538' are two characters... Did something go wrong there?

How do you handle the higher code pages? These are from http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U1D400.pdf Alan Isaac

(I can't display that character here, but that's how it should work, I suppose.)  When replying to my email address, please ensure that the mail header contains 'Felix Wiemann'. http://www.ososo.de/

I haven't found a browser that displays these yet, not even Amaya which in fact has a poor rendering. But the most commonly used are from a lower code page, and these display fine in Opera, FireFox, and KMeleon, although not Amaya or IE6. (IE seems to have very poor entity support in general.

Many apologies, but as Felix pointed out, some of the unicode strings I provided were incomplete. (Fixed below; complete set provided again.) 2. A blackboard bold R is written as \Bbb{R} in regular text and as \mathbb{R} in math mode. I assume we only care about the latter. Anyway, \mathbf is different, and I haven't given you those yet.

The \mathbf{} command is=20 already there: "\mathbf{x}" gives <mstyle fontweight=3D"bold"><mi>x</mi></mstyle> Jens J=F8rgen
