Date: June 8, 2008 9:19:55 AM CEST
This pack­age has been put up at tug.ctan.org and should soon work its way through the sys­tem. Thank you, Jim Hef­feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ........................................................................ The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: fontwrap Author's name: Mike "Po­max" Kamer­mans Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/xe­tex/la­tex/fontwrap Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: fontwrap lets you bind fonts to spe­cific uni­code blocks, for au­to­matic font tag­ging of mul­ti­lin­gual text Li­cense type: gpl An­nounce­ment text:
For ev­ery­one who writes mul­ti­lin­gual texts, fontwrap makes the has­sle of adding lan­guage chang­ing or font chang­ing macros a lot eas­ier by dis­pens­ing with hav­ing you add them in your text al­to­gether. Just tell the pack­age which fonts to use for which Uni­code blocks or groups (such as the He­brew block, or all Latin blocks) and wrap your text in the fontwrap macro (re­quires UTF8 in­put, but then when don't you save a mul­ti­lin­gual file in UTF8 any­more these days?)
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/xe­tex/la­tex/fontwrap . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/fontwrap (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

fontwrap – Bind fonts to spe­cific uni­code blocks

The pack­age (which runs un­der XeLaTeX) lets you bind fonts to spe­cific uni­code blocks, for au­to­matic font tag­ging of mul­ti­lin­gual text.

The pack­age uses Perl (via perl­tex) to con­struct its ta­bles.
