Direc­tory tex-archive/fonts/oldstandard

Old Standard is supposed to reproduce the actual printing style of the
early 20th century, reviving a specific type of Modern (classicist)
style of serif typefaces, very commonly used in various editions of
the late 19th and early 20th century, but almost completely abandoned

It supports typesetting of Old and Middle English, Old Icelandic,
Cyrillic (with historical characters, extensions for Old Slavonic and
localised forms), Gothic transliterations, critical editions of
Classical Greek and Latin, and many more.

Old Standard works with TeX engines that directly support OpenType
features, such as XeTeX and LuaTeX.

old­stan­dard – Old Stan­dard: A Uni­code Font for Clas­si­cal and Medieval Stud­ies

Old Stan­dard is de­signed to re­pro­duce the ac­tual print­ing style of the early 20th cen­tury, re­viv­ing a spe­cific type of Modern (clas­si­cist) style of serif type­faces, very com­monly used in var­i­ous edi­tions of the late 19th and early 20th cen­tury, but al­most com­pletely aban­doned later.

The font sup­ports type­set­ting of Old and Mid­dle English, Old Ice­landic, Cyril­lic (with his­tor­i­cal char­ac­ters, ex­ten­sions for Old Slavonic and lo­calised forms), Gothic translit­er­a­tions, crit­i­cal edi­tions of Clas­si­cal Greek and Latin, and many more.

Old Stan­dard works with TeX en­gines that di­rectly sup­port OpenType fea­tures, such as XTeX and LuaTeX.
