Unfortunately all introductory textbooks I know are in german, but I
will look if I can find something appropriate. Also I don't really know
how to set mathematics in latex. Do you know about an introduction?
There is a lot about what fonts and symbols exists, but I would need
something about when to use what font or mode.

Yes. And there should be a reference some where in the wiki. Even if it
is just a reference which pamphlet defines a special notation.

Is it possible that I locked the page with zope-external-edit? It still
doesn't really works here.
