hieroglyph – Hieroglyph fonts and other support
HieroTeX is a system for typesetting ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. It contains a hieroglyphic font, a number of style files, and a helper program in C called sesh which allows one to type hieroglyphic texts using the ‘manuel de codage’, which is the current standard for encoding ancient Egyptian. The fonts in the base system are distributed as METAFONT source, but Adobe type 1 versions are also provided.
