README
This is the README for version 2.206 of Peter S. Baker's
Junicode family of fonts (2024-04-23). The Junicode font is
primarily for scholars and students of the Middle Ages, but
it serves users with a wide variety of interests. It tracks
the development of the Medieval Unicode Font Initiative
(MUFI), with its wealth of specialized medieval characters,
but it also provides many OpenType features that allow users
to access MUFI characters in accessible ways.

This package supports the Junicode static fonts for
XeLaTeX, LuaLaTeX and [pdf]LaTeX. To install this
package on a TDS-compliant TeX system download the file
"tex-archive"/install/fonts/junicode.tds.zip where the
preferred URL for "tex-archive" is http://mirrors.ctan.org.
Unzip the archive at the root of an appropriate texmf tree,
likely a personal or local tree. If necessary, update the
file-name database (e.g., texhash). Update the font-map
files by enabling the Map file Junicode.map.

Load Junicode in the usual way, with

  \usepackage{junicode}. 

Several options are available:

light 

  The weight of the type for the main text is Light instead
  of Regular.

medium 

  The weight of the type for the main text is Medium,
  somewhat heavier than Regular.

semibold 

  The weight of bold type is somewhat lighter than the usual
  bold. This may be a good choice if you have selected the
  light option.

condensed 

  The width of the type is narrow. Note that bold type
  cannot be condensed: when this option is selected, any
  bold type in the text will have normal width.

semicondensed 

  The width of the type is narrower than the default but
  wider than condensed. Note that bold type cannot be
  semicondensed: when this option is selected, any bold type
  in the text will have normal width.

expanded 

  The width of the type is wide. Note that light type cannot
  be expanded: using both the light and the expanded options
  will produce an error.


semiexpanded 

  The width of the type is wider than the default but
  narrower than expanded. Note that light type cannot be
  semiexpanded: using both the light and the semiexpanded
  options will produce an error.

fonttype 

  The type of font to look for (using XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX):
  OpenType or TrueType. These font types differ in the way
  they draw outlines, and their hinting technologies are
  very different. Values may be otf (the default) or ttf,
  e.g. \usepackage[fonttype=ttf]{Junicode}


The following commands allow local use of specific figure
styles: \oldstylenums, \liningnums, \tabularnums,
\proportionalnums, \textsu{..}, \textinf{..}.

The following font encodings are supported if type1 fonts
are used: OT1,T1,TS1,LY1,LGR

Selecting Alternate Styles

The Junicode font comes in thirty-eight styles: nineteen
roman and nineteen italic. You can switch to any of these
styles with one of the following commands, which will be
self-explanatory if you keep these abbreviations in mind: 
Sm = Semi, Cond = Condensed, Exp = Expanded.

\jBoldItalic

There are additional commands and options for use with

directory.

Junicode – A TrueType and OpenType font family for mediaevalists

Junicode is a TrueType/OpenType font family with many features for antiquarians (especially medievalists) based on typefaces used by the Oxford Press in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. It works well with Lua or , but the basic textual features are also available with (pdf).
