This is the README for the ebgaramond package, version 0.16
(2014-07-07).

This package provides LaTeX, pdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX
support for the EB Garamond family of fonts, designed by
Georg Duffner.

EB Garamond is a revival of the 16th century fonts designed
by Claude Garamont. The source for the letterforms is
a scan of a specimen known as the "Berner specimen",
which, composed in 1592 by Conrad Berner, son-in-law of
Christian Egenolff and his successor at the Egenolff
print office, shows Garamont's roman and Granjon's italic
fonts at different sizes. Hence the name of this project:
Egenolff-Berner Garamond.

Currently only upright and italic variants in medium weight
are available. The medium series will be automatically
substituted for bold.

To install this package on a TDS-compliant
TeX system download the file
"tex-archive"/install/fonts/ebgaramond.tds.zip, where the
preferred URL for "tex-archive" is http://mirror.ctan.org.
Unzip the archive at the root of an appropriate texmf tree,
likely a personal or local tree. If necessary, update the
file-name database (e.g., texhash). Update the font-map
files by enabling the Map file EBGaramond.map.

To use, add

\usepackage{ebgaramond}

to the preamble of your document. Options include:

oldstyle,osf    old-style figures
lining,nf,lf    lining figures

proportional,p  varying-width figures
tabular,t       fixed-width figures

The defaults are oldstyle and proportional.

Available shapes include:

it              italic
sc              small caps
scit            italic small caps

Slanted variants are not supported; the italic variants will
be automatically substituted. Font encodings supported are
OT1, T1, LY1 and TS1.

Options scaled=<number> or scale=<number> may be used to adjust
fontsizes. The type1 option may be used by xelatex or lualatex users
who prefer to use type1 fonts or to avoid fontspec.

Commands \oldstylenums{...} and \liningnums{...} are defined to allow
for local use of old-style figures or lining figures, respectively.
Similarly, \tabularnums{...} and \proportionalnums{...} allow for local
use of monospaced or varying-width figures, respectively.

Superior numbers (for footnote markers) are available
using \sufigures or \textsu{...}. Inferior numbers (for
subscripts) are available using \infigures or \textinf{...}.
Swash italic glyphs (for some letters) are available using
\swshape or \textsw{...}.

Command \textin{...} produces decorative initials; currently
only the following glyphs are available: A, D, F, G, L, N,
O, Q, T and X.

A configuration file for microtype usage is included.

The original fonts are available at
http://www.georgduffner.at/ebgaramond/ and are licensed
under the SIL Open Font License, (version 1.1); the text may
be found in the doc directory. Font charts may be found in
the doc directory.

The type1 versions were created using cfftot1. The support
files were created using autoinst and otftotfm (version
2.103) and are licensed under the terms of the LaTeX Project
Public License. The maintainer of this package is Bob
Tennent (rdt at cs.queensu.ca)
