Direc­tory fonts/t1-fraktur

All modifications are enumerated in CHANGELOG.

The most important changes are:
- letters L, l, d, t with caron
- ligature ft (you can switch it off if you don't like it)
- ligature *J for alternative J glyph
- old umlauts *a *e *o *u are working again
- IL2 (CS) encoded fonts (fkl2*)
- *.fd files for IL2 and OT1 encoding

IL2 encoding is used mostly by Czech and Slovak TeX users, using
CSTeX.  This encoding is fully compatible with old TeX encoding (OT1),
i.e. charcters 0-127 are the same as in original Computer Modern fonts,
so you can use IL2 font as if it were an OT1 font. Actually the *.fd files
provided do it this way :)

However, fraktur font does not contain all characters from OT1 encoding
(notably the Greek letters) and I have placed the extra ligatures and
old umlauted letters in those empty slots.

Characters 128-255 correspond to ISO-8859-2 (ISO Latin-2) with few
exceptions and a few extra characters. All accented letters from
ISO Latin-2 are in the right place (except for \c{t}), so you can
write documents directly in ISO and forget about combinig letters and
accents. Write "h��ek" instead of "h\'a\v cek" :).

t1-frak­tur – A pair of frak­tur font fam­i­lies in T1 en­cod­ing

Th­ese fonts were (it seems) orig­i­nally de­vel­oped for use with Czech and other Eastern Euro­pean lan­guages, and then ex­tended for more gen­eral use. They don't, in fact, cover the en­tire T1 en­cod­ing, but they come pretty close. The fonts are dis­tributed as source.

Both font fam­i­lies come in both up­right and "slanted" shape, and in both medium and bold weight (an in­ter­est­ing choice, given that the “medium” is al­ready pretty heavy).
