On Mon, 18 Jun 2012 Geoffrey Jones submitted the typeface package. Summary description: A package for simplifying LaTeX Type1 font setup License type: lppl Announcement text:
The typeface package provides a relatively simple facility for setting up default roman, sans serif, teletype, math, symbols and lining/text figures Type1 fonts in LaTeX documents. Its purpose is to make it as easy as possible to mix, match, scale, test and use whatever combinations you like from among the main Type 1 font sets available at CTAN. Other Type1 fonts can be readily integrated by modifying the bundled configuration file.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/typeface . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/typeface (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 . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

typeface – Select a balanced set of fonts

The package provides the means of establishing a consistent set of fonts for use in a document. It allows mixing and matching the Type 1 font sets available on the archive (and it may be extended, via its configuration file, to support other fonts).

Font-set definition takes the form of a set of options that are read when the package is loaded: for each typographic category (main body font, sans-serif font, monospace font, mathematics fonts, text figures, and so on), a font or a transformation is given in those options.

The approach enables the user to remember their own configurations (as a single command) and to borrow configurations that other users have developed.

The present release is designated “for review”.
