This directory contains

Izhitsa.mf       version of Old Slavonic font in Dos866 encoding
Izh1251.mf       the same font in Win1251 encoding
lbcoding.mf      Dos866 encoding
wbcoding.mf      Win1251 encoding
Izhitsa.sty      a style file for usage of Izh1251 with PlainTeX
                 and LaTeX2.09

It would be nice if somebody can

  1) improve the quality of the font refining spaces between letters
     by adding information on kerning pairs, something like this 
        ligtable CYR_GHE : CYR_o kern -15*FX#,
                           CYR_e kern -12*FX#; 
     and so on.

  2) write a font description and a style file for LaTeX2e

  3) create another family of Old Slavonic fonts.
     Likely, the simpliest way is to convert Free True Type
     Old Slavonic fonts (see e.g. www.dtcc.edu/~berlin/font/slavonic.htm)
     to Meta Font sources using the program TTF2MF and
     then rearrange them if needed.
