xfakebold – Fake a regular font for bold characters

This package uses PDF’s text rendering to modify the linewidth of an outline font to get bold characters. It works only for vectorfonts where the glyphs are defined by their outline.

The package works both in text and in math mode, for pdf as well as for Lua.

The package depends on iftex, xkeyval, and pdfrender.
