# 1. Setting nice fonts

A variety of fonts are available on LaTeX, especially if the system is based on TeX Live. Among the most simplest ways is, for instance, to include:

\usepackage{txfonts}

to use Times, or

\usepackage{pxfonts}

to use Palatino.

However, these packages are not modern anymore; more elegant alternatives are available (see here for an almost complete list of fonts available on TeX Live or any other systems).

Below are my favorite examples.

• More elegant Palatino:
\usepackage[sc]{mathpazo}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

• Kpfonts (Palatino-like)

\usepackage{kpfonts}

• Libertine (used e.g. in Wikipedia on each sectioning):
• \usepackage{libertine}
\usepackage{libertinust1math}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

• STIX (Scientific and Technical Information Exchange; Times-based but much more elegant than txfonts package):
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{stix}

\usepackage{fourier}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

or:

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

• Crimson (with math support):
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{cochineal}
\usepackage[cochineal,varg]{newtxmath}

• Garamond (but it’s a bit thin and less-friendly):
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{garamondx}
\usepackage[garamondx,cmbraces]{newtxmath}

or:

\usepackage[urw-garamond]{mathdesign}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
