Files for using the font with LaTeX are also included. This is one of a series of ancient fonts. The distribution consists of the following files: README (this file) protosem.ins protosem.dtx tryfont.tex The distribution is provided under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL). Changes in version 1.1 ---------------------- o Minor changes to the glyph encoding to match other fonts in the series To install the package: o run: latex protosem.ins, which will generate: proto*.mf files *.fd files protosem.sty o run: latex protosem.dtx o run: makeindex -s gind.ist protosem o run: latex protosem.dtx o Print protosem.dvi for a hardcopy of the package manual o Move the generated files to locations where LaTeX will find them. For example: the *.fd and .sty files to .../local/texmf/tex/latex/protosem the proto*.mf files to .../texmf/fonts/source/public/protosem On a teTeX distribution you might also have to add the following line to texmf/fontname/special.map: proto10.mf public protosem On a teTeX distribution remember to run texhash after moving the files. o run: latex tryfont for a testpage of the Proto-Semitic font 2000/09/30 Peter Wilson firstname.lastname@example.org
