The rustic and allrust packages provide fonts based on the Roman Rustic manuscript book-hand used between the 1st and 6th century AD. The font consists of majuscules only, with some appropriate period punctuation marks. Both normal and bold versions are provided. This is one in a series of manuscript fonts. Access to the docmfp package is desireable but not essential. The distribution consists of the following files: README (this file) rustic.ins rustic.dtx tryfont.tex allfont.tex The distribution is provided under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL). To install the package: ======================= o run: latex rustic.ins, which will generate: rust*.mf files *.fd files rustic.sty allrust.sty o Move the generated files to locations where LaTeX will find them. For example: the rust*.mf files to .../texmf/fonts/source/public/rustic the *.fd and .sty files to /texmf/tex/latex/local/rustic On a teTeX distribution you might also have to add lines like the following to texmf/fontname/special.map: rust7.mf public rustic rust10.mf public rustic rust17.mf public rustic rustb7.mf public rustic rustb10.mf public rustic rustb17.mf public rustic On a teTeX distribution remember to run texhash after moving the files. (I use a teTeX distribution and found that if I didn't add to the special.map file, then the generated tfm and pk files were put in directories corresponding to another set of fonts according to the font naming scheme for vendors' fonts.) Other LaTeX distributions might require procedures similar to those for teTeX. To typeset the documentation: ============================= o run: latex rustic.dtx o if you want an index then run: makeindex -s gind.ist rustic o run: latex rustic.dtx o Print rustic.dvi for a hardcopy of the package manual Note that the docmfp package is normally required for LaTeXing rustic.dtx. The package is available from CTAN in tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported. If you haven't got this and don't want to get it, then there are instructions in the first part of the .dtx file about how to edit it to avoid the use of docmfp. (docmfp is an extension of the doc package for describing METAFONT, or other non-LaTeX, code.) To check out your installation: =============================== o run: latex tryfont for samples of the Roman Rustic font o run: latex allfont for a sample document typeset with the Roman Rustic font 1999/05/01 Peter Wilson firstname.lastname@example.org
