This is the second shot at fontinst and LaTeX2e support for Joerg Knappen's new Text Companion font encoding, pioneered in DC fonts 1.2. Joerg has looked at the first attempt and made a number of suggestions and changes, all used. There are probably quite a few glyphs which could or should be defined as fakes in textcomp.mtx, if someone has the energy to work it all out. I have the energy but no time. This package contains 1) an mtx file (textcomp.mtx) which contains the list of glyphs 2) TS1i.etx and TS1.etx encoding files 3) a set of support macros (textcomp.tex) (which could later be merged into fontinst.sty once Alan has looked at them) 4) a textcomp.dtx/.ins file which expands to textcomp.sty and test.tex, giving LaTeX users access to the new glyphs, and overriding the default settings as appropriate (ie if you ask for a symbol it'll come out by default from TS1, unless you are in an encoding where it is declared already). this has the `right' effect, ie bullets no longer come from maths fonts The script "makets1.tex" builds the new fonts for Adobe Times, Monotype Times, and Monotype Baskerville (with expert sets). The TS1 encoding is named 8c in Karl Berry's scheme, or 9c if it includes expert set glyphs. Sebastian Rahtz November 8th 1995

textcomp – LaTeX support for the Text Companion fonts
The package supports the Text Companion fonts, which provide many text symbols (such as baht, bullet, copyright, musicalnote, onequarter, section, and yen), in the TS1 encoding.
Note that the package has been adopted as part of the LaTeX distribution; the reference here is to the original package, which is now little used (if at all).
