cmsd – Interfaces to the CM Sans Serif Bold fonts

Thr pur­pose of the pack­age is to pro­vide an al­ter­na­tive in­ter­face to the CM Sans Serif bold­face fonts. The EC (T1, Cork) en­coded ver­sions of the ‘CM Sans Serif bold­face ex­tended’ fonts dif­fer con­sid­er­ably from the tra­di­tion­ally (OT1) en­coded ones: at large sizes, >10pt, they have thin­ner strokes and are much wider. At 25pt they are hardly to be rec­og­nized as be­ing ‘bold­face’. This pack­age at­tempts to make these T1 fonts look like the tra­di­tional ones did. You do not need any new fonts; the pack­age just changes the way makes use of the cur­rent ones.
