Abstract : Typesetting of mathematical formulae has conflicting requirements, on the one hand, optical scaling is a need for large symbols, in the other hand, large symbols are made of composite items that are neither easily nor nicely put together. In this paper it is shown that such large symbols should be computed at print time so that they reach the quality of metal typesetting. An implementation of such dynamic fonts is in progress in the Grif editor.
