Producing Script r In LaTeX Expressions

When we have so many letters already, why would one need this fancy little Script r? While typesetting mathematical expressions that govern our (beautiful & elegant) physical universe, often one runs out of symbols and as such, it becomes necessary to use the same letter/character in different styles to convey the intended meaning. Electrodynamics and Gravitation are just a couple such fields that often use – fortunately or unfortunately – a variation of alphabet r, called the script r. I did try to generate this elusive script r in LaTeX for quite a few years and failed miserably every time.

Using this web-based utility is pretty simple. Just type-in (or paste) the string in the form and copy/save the graphic to your computer.
