A new pack­age has been in­stalled at tug.ctan.org and should soon make its way to your fa­vorite mir­ror. I apol­o­gize for the de­lay; thank you for prompt­ing me. Thanks again, Jim Hef­feron ====================================================================== The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor. Name of con­tri­bu­tion: Teng­warScript Author's name: Ig­na­cio Fernán­dez Galván Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/la­tex/con­trib/teng­warscript Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: A pack­age for writ­ing teng­war with LaTeX Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor:
The Teng­warScript pack­age pro­vides a mid-level ac­cess to teng­war fonts while still gen­er­at­ing good out­put by de­fault. Each teng­war sign has an in­di­vid­ual com­mand, wich should place the sign nicely with re­la­tion to the pre­ced­ing signs. So, to write the word "quetta" in Quenya mode one would write: \Tquesse\Ta­cute\Tt­inco\TT­dou­bler\TTthree­dots Teng­warScribe sup­ports sev­eral teng­war fonts which can be found in Type 1 for­mat or eas­ily con­verted, in­clud­ing Dan Smith's fonts, Teng­war Par­maite, Teng­war An­natar and oth­ers. The full set of sup­ported fonts can be found in the man­ual and in the sam­ple "teng­fonts.pdf" file.

Teng­warScript – sup­port for us­ing Teng­war fonts

The pack­age pro­vides “mid-level” ac­cess to teng­war fonts, pro­vid­ing good qual­ity out­put. Each teng­war sign is rep­re­sented by a com­mand, which will place the sign nicely in re­la­tion to pre­vi­ous signs.

A tran­scrip­tion pack­age is avail­able from the pack­age’s home page: writ­ing all those teng­war com­mands would quickly be­come un­ten­able.

The pack­age sup­ports the use of a wide va­ri­ety of teng­war fonts that are avail­able from the net; met­ric and map files are pro­vided for all the sup­ported fonts.
