The rotunda and allrtnd packages provide Metafont fonts based on the Rotunda manuscript book-hand used between the 13th & 15th century AD. The font consists of lower- and uppercase letters, 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) rotunda.ins rotunda.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 rotunda.ins, which will generate: rtnd*.mf files *.fd files rotunda.sty allrtnd.sty o Move the generated files to locations where LaTeX will find them. For example: the rtnd*.mf files to .../texmf/fonts/source/public/rotunda the *.fd and *.sty files to /texmf/tex/latex/local/rotunda On a teTeX distribution you might also have to add lines like the following to texmf/fontname/special.map: rtnd7.mf public rotunda rtnd10.mf public rotunda rtnd17.mf public rotunda rtndb7.mf public rotunda rtndb10.mf public rotunda rtndb17.mf public rotunda 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 rotunda.dtx o if you want an index then run: makeindex -s gind.ist rotunda o run: latex rotunda.dtx o Print rotunda.dvi for a hardcopy of the package manual Note that the docmfp package is normally required for LaTeXing rotunda.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 2002/12/30 Peter Wilson firstname.lastname@example.org
