Selection commands

There are no commands for selecting symbol fonts. Instead, these are selected indirectly through symbol commands like \oplus. Section 3.6 explains how to define symbol commands.

\mathnormal{[itex]}
\mathcal{[itex]}
\mathrm{[itex]}
\mathbf{[itex]}
\mathsf{[itex]}
\mathit{[itex]}
\mathtt{[itex]}

Each math alphabet is a command which can only be used inside math mode. For example, $x + \mathsf{y} + \mathcal{Z}$ produces .

\mathversion{<version>}

This command selects a math version; it can only be used outside math mode. For example, \boldmath is defined to be \mathversion{bold}.
