PXjodel Package

: To help change metrics of the fonts of japanese-otf package

This package changes the setup of the japanese-otf package, so that the TFMs for direct input are all replaced by new ones with prefixed names; for exmaple, nmlminr-h will be replaced by foo--nmlminr-h, where foo is the prefix specified by the user.

This function will assist the users who want to use japamese-otf package together with tailored TFMs of Japanese fonts.

Note: The name “jodel” stands for “Japanese Otf DELuxe” (and “deluxe” is a package option of japanese-otf) and is not at all related to yodel singing (although some sense of word-play is intended).

Note: The “jodel” part of the package name stands for “japanese-otf deluxe”. Here “deluxe” is the name of japanese-otf’s option for employing multi-weight Japanese font families. This option is probably the most likely reason for using japanese-otf. So this package is really about japanese-otf’s “deluxe” option, hence the name. It is not related to yodel singing, although some sense of word-play is intended.

pxjodel – Help change metrics of fonts from japanese-otf

This package changes the setup of the japanese-otf package so that the TFMs for direct input are all replaced by new ones with prefixed names; for example, nmlminr-h will be replaced by foo--nmlminr-h, where foo is a prefix specified by the user.

This function will assist users who want to use the japanese-otf package together with tailored TFMs of Japanese fonts.

The “jodel” part of the package name stands for “japanese-otf deluxe”. Here “deluxe” is the name of japanese-otf’s option for employing multi-weight Japanese font families. This option is probably the most likely reason for using japanese-otf. So pxjodel is really about japanese-otf’s “deluxe” option, hence the name. It is not related to yodel singing, although some sense of word-play is intended.
