Qapla' this is the announcement for the Metafont version of the Klingon font. It will follow in the next two messages. Save them into a file and unpack them by running them through the bourne shell. Then you will get two files called "klinz.mf" and "kligs.mf". You then should run mf "\mode:=localfont;" input klinz gftopk klinz.*gf (or for MS-DOS, where xxx is a number (300 for example for normal laserprinters)) mf "\mode:=localfont;" input klinz gftopk klinz.xxx klinz.pk Copy the now existing klinz.tfm and klinz.*pk to a place TeX knows about (ask your local TeXnician, if you're not certain) and your ready to go. (Metafont is a font description language used for the TeX-fonts, so if you're not familiar with it, go get it, it's great! But before asking me, where you can do so, read comp.text.tex --- there you will find all the answers.) Over the past weeks I spent my evenings defining the characters and testing them. It has a full set of upper and lower case characters (in some sort of small capitals) plus numerals plus some additional characters (punctuation, etc) designed by a colleague of mine. The character @ represents the Klingon imperial symbol. You may freely distribute this font under the limitations that you leave the commentary part at the beginning of each file intact (including the copyright notice) and that you send me any changes you made, so that I can continue improving the font. (This font is far from being perfect, so any comment is welcome.)
