Half-width katakana Type 1 fonts in SJIS encoding are provided to integrate with the Wadalab fonts for use with, for example, the CJK package. Auxiliary files to use the font with Unicode UTF8 encoding are also provided. The origin of the font is the Wadalab gothic font katakana glyphs, which have been modified to make up the JIS X 0201 set of half-width katakana characters using Fontforge. The Wadalab fonts need to be available for this package to work. Installation instructions and examples of usage are provided.

The original Wadalab fonts by TANAKA Tetsuro (email@example.com) are available from the URL: ftp.ipl.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp and are licensed under a DFSG-free license given in ISO-2022-JP encoding at the URL: ftp://ftp.dante.de/pub/tex/support/ghostscript/3rdparty/fonts/kanji/README.nihongo. Modifications to the Wadalab fonts were carried out using the wftodm patch by Werner Lemberg licensed under GPL, and the resultant Type 1 font file dgjkata.pfb was used as the basis for these half-width katakana fonts. 2 - CHANGELOG This is version 1.0 (2008-01-16). NEW in version 1.0: * complete JIS X 0201 half-width katakana characters * Type 1 font in SJIS encoding * TeX virtual fonts for UTF8 encoding * TeX .tfm files for SJIS and UTF8 encoding * LaTeX .fd files for SJIS encoding * dvips .map file * installation instructions 3 - FILES This package contains the following files: * README: this file * hwkatakana-sampler-UTF8.tex, hwkatakana-sampler-SJIS.tex: sample files * hwkatakana-sampler-UTF8.pdf, hwkatakana-sampler-SJIS.pdf: compiled sample files * dgjhw.map: dvips map file * c49min.fd, c49goth.fd, c49maru.fd: latex font definition files for SJIS encoding * dgjhw.pfb: Type 1 font file for SJIS encoding * dgjhw.tfm: TeX font metric file for SJIS encoding * udgjff.tfm, udmjff.tfm, umrjff.tfm, umcjff.tfm: TeX font metric files for UTF8 encoding * udgjff.vf, udmjff.vf, umrjff.vf, umcjff.vf: Virtual font files for UTF8 encoding 4 - INSTALLATION The texmf tree provides a standard TDS. The files in this distribution mimic the structure of this tree. You have to install the following files in one of your texmf trees (or create a new one). It is important to first install the Wadalab fonts, since this package relies on the Wadalab installation and supplies some alternative subfonts replacing those of the Wadalab-supplied subfonts. The installation will then overwrite these subfonts with the alternative ones from this package, thus you should keep the original ones for when you uninstall this package. * dgjhw.tfm: $TEXMF/fonts/tfm/wadalab/dgjhw/ * dgjhw.pfb: $TEXMF/fonts/type1/wadalab/dgjhw/ * dgjhw.map: $TEXMF/fonts/map/dvips/dgjhw/ % Note: Those files overwrite existing ones! * udgjff.tfm: $TEXMF/fonts/tfm/wadalab/udgj/ * udmjff.tfm: $TEXMF/fonts/tfm/wadalab/udmj/ * umrjff.tfm: $TEXMF/fonts/tfm/wadalab/umrj/ * umcjff.tfm: $TEXMF/fonts/tfm/wadalab/umcj/ % Note: Those files overwrite existing ones! * udgjff.vf: $TEXMF/fonts/type1/wadalab/udgj/ * udmjff.vf: $TEXMF/fonts/type1/wadalab/udmj/ * umrjff.vf: $TEXMF/fonts/type1/wadalab/umrj/ * umcjff.vf: $TEXMF/fonts/type1/wadalab/umcj/ * c49min.fd: $TEXMF/tex/latex/CJK/contrib/wadalab/ * c49goth.fd: $TEXMF/tex/latex/CJK/contrib/wadalab/ * c49maru.fd: $TEXMF/tex/latex/CJK/contrib/wadalab/ * README $TEXMF/doc/fonts/wadalab/dgjh/ * hwkatakana-sampler-UTF8.tex $TEXMF/doc/fonts/wadalab/dgjh/ * hwkatakana-sampler-SJIS.tex $TEXMF/doc/fonts/wadalab/dgjh/ * hwkatakana-sampler-UTF8.pdf $TEXMF/doc/fonts/wadalab/dgjh/ * hwkatakana-sampler-SJIS.pdf $TEXMF/doc/fonts/wadalab/dgjh/ 5 - CONFIGURATION After installing the files and new directories, you should run % sudo texhash Then run updmap-sys % sudo updmap-sys --enable Map dgjhw.map If you don't have updmap-sys or don't want to use it: . For dvips, add this line in config.ps: p +dgjhw.map . For pdf(la)tex add this line in pdftex.cfg: map +dgjhw.map . Following this you need to run again % sudo texhash If you have problems when installing the half-width katakana fonts, please contact me. 6 - USAGE The Wadalab fonts must be available first, so that the "min", "goth" and "maru" typefaces can be used. To these typefaces are now added newly the half-width katakana glyphs. When writing in SJIS encoded files, the command \CJKhwkatakana must be used in the document to activate the use of half-width katakana (\CJKnohwkatakana converts them to full-width katakana). Then, half-width katakana can be entered at the keyboard and be present in the output. When writing UTF8 encoded files, no special commands are needed; half-width katakana can simply be entered at the keyboard and are automatically handled by the CJK package. The \CJKnohwkatakana will convert all entered half-width katakana to full-width in the output, and vice versa for \CJKhwkatakana. No support is currently provided for the use of half-width katakana in EUC encoded files. 7 - DERIVATION The modified (by wftodm patch, see Section 1 LICENSE) Wadalab Gothic Type 1 full-width katakana font file dgjkata.pfb was used as the basis for the half-width katakana font of this package. Fontforge was used to edit the glyphs and create the .pfb and .tfm files. To make the virtual font for UTF8 encoding, clonevf.pl from the CJK package repository was used to make a mapped copy (to itself) of dgjhw.tfm. The vf file was converted to vpl, and the entries modified to reflect a mapping from UTF8 to SJIS. Then they were added, along with a reference to the mapped font, to the .vpl version of the existing Wadalab udgjff.vf. Then new .vf and .tfm were created from udgjff.vpl.
