LHCYR 1.0 (c) 1998 V.V.Zhytnikov (email@example.com) The LaTeX 2e styles for Russian typesetting in bilingual environment Available at CTAN:/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/lhcyr Main CTAN sites: ctan.tug.org, ftp.dante.de, ftp.tex.ac.uk This package is free. You may modify and use it for whatever purpose you want. But you are not allowed to redistribute modified version under the same name. CONTENTS 1. General Features 2. Fonts 3. Hyphenation Tables 1. GENERAL FEATURES The LHCYR collection consists of three different styles lhcyralt, lhcyrwin and lhcyrkoi. They are completely analogous but intended for typesetting Russian in the Alternative (codepage 866), Windows (codepage 1251) and KOI-8 encodings respectively. Each style resides in separate directory. Styles of the LHCYR collection are intended for typesetting Russian language or bilingual English-Russian documents. All styles are based on the standard cm-fonts and lh-cyrillic fonts. The LHCYR styles do not use language switching mechanism and allow to mix English and Russian words providing correct hyphenation and kerning for both languages simultaneously. Modern Russian hyphenation patterns are included. We provide detailed installation instruction for emTeX (lhcyralt and lhcyrwin) and teTeX (lhcyrkoi). It seems that installation for MikTeX (Windows 95/98/NT) should be quite similar to teTeX's one. 2. FONTS There exist several Russian TeX fonts distributions. At present the best fonts are provided by the lh-fonts package. I strongly recommend them due to several reasons: (1) The fonts are of quite good quality. (2) The fonts are supported and maintainers constantly improve them. (3) The font set is complete. Lh-fonts contain analogous to all standard cm or ec Latin text font shapes -- roman, typewriter, small caps etc. (4) Due to flexible design lh-fonts allow creation of Russian fonts in various encodings from same metafont sources. (5) Finally the fonts contains not only Russian characters. They covers almost all existing Cyrillic-alphabet languages as well. Lh-fonts are available at CTAN: /tex-archive/fonts/cyrillic/lh or at ftp: ftp.vsu.ru/pub/tex 3. HYPHENATION TABLES For a quite long time the only TeX hyphenation patterns for Russian language where ones provided by Dmitri Vulis. Recently Andrei Slepukhin created a new hyphenation tables. These patterns follow strict Russian hyphenation rules. The are available at CTAN: /tex-archive/language/hyphenation/ruhyphen/ or at ftp: forest.nmd.msu.ru/pub/tex/hyphenation

lhcyr – A non-standard Cyrillic input scheme
A collection of three LaTeX 2e styles intended for typesetting Russian and bilingual English-Russian documents, using the lh fonts and without the benefit of babel's language-switching mechanisms.
The packages (lhcyralt and lhcyrwin for use under emTeX, and lhcyrkoi for use under teTeX) provide mappings between the input encoding and the font encoding (which is described as OT1). The way this is done does not match the way inputenc would do the job, for output via fontenc to one of the T2 series of font encodings.
