The inslrmaj and allimaj packages provide Metafont fonts based on the Insular Majuscule manuscript book-hand used between the 6th & 9th century AD. The font consists of majuscules and digits, with some appropriate period punctuation marks. Both normal and bold versions are provided. This is one in a series of manuscript fonts. Access to the docmfp package is desireable but not essential. The distribution consists of the following files: README (this file) inslrmaj.ins inslrmaj.dtx tryfont.tex allfont.tex The distribution is provided under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL). To install the package: ======================= o run: latex inslrmaj.ins, which will generate: imaj*.mf files *.fd files inslrmaj.sty allimaj.sty o Move the generated files to locations where LaTeX will find them. For example: the imaj*.mf files to .../texmf/fonts/source/public/inslrmaj the *.fd and *.sty files to /texmf/tex/latex/local/inslrmaj On a teTeX distribution you might also have to add lines like the following to texmf/fontname/special.map: imaj7.mf public inslrmaj imaj10.mf public inslrmaj imaj17.mf public inslrmaj imajb7.mf public inslrmaj imajb10.mf public inslrmaj imajb17.mf public inslrmaj On a teTeX distribution remember to run texhash after moving the files. (I use a teTeX distribution and found that if I didn't add to the special.map file, then the generated tfm and pk files were put in directories corresponding to some vendor's font.) Other LaTeX distributions might require procedures similar to those for teTeX. To typeset the documentation: ============================= o run: latex inslrmaj.dtx o if you want an index then run: makeindex -s gind.ist inslrmaj o run: latex inslrmaj.dtx o Print inslrmaj.dvi for a hardcopy of the package manual Note that the docmfp package is normally required for LaTeXing inslrmaj.dtx. The package is available from CTAN in tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported. If you haven't got this and don't want to get it, then there are instructions in the first part of the .dtx file about how to edit it to avoid the use of docmfp. (docmfp is an extension of the doc package for describing METAFONT, or other non-LaTeX, code.) To check out your installation: =============================== o run: latex tryfont for a testpage of the fonts o run: latex allfont for a document typeset with the fonts 2000/09/16 Peter Wilson firstname.lastname@example.org
