hfoldsty fonts

The hfoldsty package provides virtual fonts for using oldstyle
(0123456789) figures with the European Computer Modern fonts.
It does a similar job as the eco package by Sebastian
Kirsch <> but includes a couple of
improvements, e.g., better kerning with guillemets, support for
character protruding using the pdfcprot package, arbitrary font
sizes in conjunction with fix-cm.sty.

The distribution contains of two zip files:
- contains the files you have to install to use the 
  hfoldsty fonts.
- contains the shell scripts, fontinst and latex
  source codes that have been used to generate the installation files
  in If you are not really sure what you are doing 
  don't touch that file.

Installation in a TDS TeX implementation:

Change to the LocalTeXMF directory
(e.g., `c:\Programme\TeXLive\texmf-local', `/usr/TeX/texmf-local',
`/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf-local') and unzip (where
#_## stands for the version). Then refresh the TeX file database by
using the Start Menu or `texhash'.

The hfoldsty fonts have been developed starting from the eco fonts by
Sebastian Kirsch <>. Many thanks to him for his great
