Using Monotype Berling with Latex
=================================

This package contains everything you need (apart from
the fonts themselves) to use Monotype Berling in your
Latex documents.

The Truetype version of Monotype Berling contains a 
larger character set than earlier (Postscript) versions 
of the same font, including Greek and oldstyle figures. 

It is available as part of Microsoft's free e-book reader 
(http://www.microsoft.com/reader/downloads/default.asp; 
this will install these fonts in your system's fonts 
folder, typically C:\Windows\fonts\).


USING THE FONTS
---------------

Using these fonts in your Latex documents is as easy as 
specifying 

    \usepackage{berling}

somewhere in the preamble of your document (but note 
that they should be used with Pdftex, not with normal
Tex; most dvi-drivers don't support Truetype fonts).

The package `berling' takes two possible options:

- lining    Use lining figures
- oldstyle  Use oldstyle figures (this is the default).

The fonts are only available in T1 and TS1 encodings; 
the `berling' package automatically sets up these 
encodings for you by including the `fontenc' and 
`textcomp' packages.
The obsolete OT1 encoding, which unfortunately is still
Latex's default, is not supported.


NFSS CLASSIFICATION

The TS1-encoded fonts are incomplete; many symbols in this
encoding are specific to the Computer Modern fonts. The
euro symbol (\texteuro), however, is available.
