This README file accompanies the teubner bundle version 5.8.x dated August 2023 or later. Copyright 2010-2023 Claudio Beccari The bundle contains the files README this file teubner.txt a more descriptive file teubner.dtx the self extracting documented TeX source file teubner-doc.tex an extended documentation file teubner.pdf general and technical documentation teubner-doc.pdf specific documentation with examples The bundle is distributed under the LPPL license version 1.3c or any later version. The bundle has the status of author maintained. The main purpose of this bundle is to provide Hellenists and classical philologists with some means for typesetting their documents that usually contain very specific mark up. This version allows the typesetter to use both Greek "italic" shapes: the Olga-like and the Lipsian-like ones; it complies with the LICR (LaTeX Internal Character Representation) of the Greek glyphs that avoid the kerning problems that arise with the ligature mechanism embedded in the LGR encoded default CBfonts; it is compatible with the use of different vector Latin Type 1 fonts; contains new designs for the horizontally stretchable markers, et cetera. Running pdflatex on the .dtx file produces both the documentation and extracts the byproduct files teubner.sty, teubnertx.sty, teubner.pdf. The readable extended documentation file teubner-doc.pdf is obtained by running pdflatex on the teubner-doc.tex file. Moreover this teubner package generates on the fly the font description files necessary to use the LGR encoded Greek fonts with some non standard TeX PostScript fonts; for example, it automatically generates the necessary files if using the TX or the PX fonts; with other Type 1 fonts the necessary .fd files require manual intervention, which simply means giving a suitable command from within another open file that loads teubner. Please, be sure to work with an updated collection of the CBfonts; with a *2020* updated version of the TeX system; with a babel version 3.9g or later; with the language description file greek.ldf version 1.9b or later; teubner version 5.2 and later patches the modifications of greek.ldf 1.10 so as cope with the ancient Greek numbering system. The teubner package works also with previous versions of the above pieces of software, but with limited performances. Versions 5.8.2 and later patch some changes that were introduced in recent versions of the babel-greek language description file. Version 5.8.3 should work shamelessly with both formats of the ISO date. Claudio Beccari claudio dot beccari at gmail dot com
