Traced it down to a glitch in the matrix, not ematrix :) It's weird but that one font was not in the XPI zip I created from your last release but it was in the local folder I created it from; and the fonts in the Roboto folder were still there. First time I've seen this. (Or my Virus Shield could have deleted it maybe.)

Good to see it solved already.
I re-checked the last XPI I created and the font is there, so there's probably some other software's meddling here.
By the way, I added that XPI to Gitlab as the extension is not yet available on APMO/ABO yet.

He gave up the greek letter in practical use. So, do what you want; might be like the Pale Moon vs. Palemoon battle though (although those do sound the same).
Maybe if I use "eMatrix" enough time people will start associating η with "e".
But time will tell.

Yes, that's bothering me too: https://gitlab.com/vannilla/ematrix/issues/4

Thanks for the help.

Congratulations on putting eMatrix up on APMO and ABO.

At present it's not possible to search for eMatrix on either site using the sites' own search functions,
regardless if spelled with an "e" or an eta ( "η" ).
Searches on ematrix and ηmatrix both come up dry.

Can this be remedied ?
(in particular for searching with the "e" spelling)

To be honest, I don't know what's up either.
Well, actually I have a suspect, but I couldn't get around to check it for a number of reasons (one of which is that I forgot.)
I'll see if I can do it within the week.

Phoebus search engine is using Search Tags exclusively. If there is no "ηMatrix" or "eMatrix" in the search tags you will not be able to find this extension using this names.
