This is the README file accompanying the Yi for LaTeX package. Please consult yi4tex.tex if you require detailed information. Package name: Yi for LaTeX, v. 0.1 Author: Oliver Corff Description: Yi for LaTeX provides support for writing all standardized Yi characters in LaTeX documents. The language Yi is spoken by the Yi nationality (also known as Lolo) in Southern China (namely in Sichuan, Guizhou, Yunnan and Guangxi). The script is a purely syllabic script which was developed on the basis of an older, ideographic system. All 1165 characters are provided in two typefaces, regular and boldface and can be accessed by their syllable names. Requirements: LaTeX2e. The package relies on the NFSS mechanism and will probably not work with LaTeX209. Comments: The version number will increase once the following things happen: - Review of the character set (at present, glyph shapes were defined after books, without feedback from native speakers) - Inclusion of the Yi syllable set in ISO 10646 and Unicode. The final arrangement may differ from the present arrangement. - Improvement of the user interface. Oliver Corff, Ulaanbaatar, September 1997
