On Tuesday 05 Feb 2002, Walter Schmidt (email@example.com) has posted a message on comp.text.tex about a freely downloadable PostScript Type-1 font containing various types of ornaments. The URL is http://www.galapagosdesign.com/download/index.html, and contains the following lines: Galapagos Design Group is pleased to make available to the Internet community free downloads of original typefaces and clipart. Our first offering is a tasty border and ornament font called Web-O-Mints. Created by George Ryan, Web-O-Mints contains a rich assortment of typographic decorations inspired by historical sources. The Web-O-Mints font is available in TrueType or PostScript format, for use on PCs or Macs. Web-O-Mints can be downloaded and used immediately in all environments. We hope you enjoy using this original collection of images. This collection includes all the files needed to use this font in LaTeX and three small LaTeX examples. Installation instructions ========================= N.B.: I assume a more-or-less standard TeX file tree; the root of tree may be "texmf", as in the following example, or "temf.local", as in my own setup; and is located under the "share" directory of my teTeX installation ($TETEXDIR/share). YOUR SETUP MAY BE DIFFERENT. If you have a teTeX-like installation, you may need to rebuild the file database, running (as root) "texhash"; for different distributions, consult their documentation. 1) Copy WebOMintsGD.tfm to the directory texmf/fonts/tfm/public/misc 2) Copy WebOMintsGD.pfb to the directory texmf/fonts/type1/public/misc 3) Copy uwebo.fd to the directory texmf/tex/latex/misc 4) If you are using dvips or pdfTeX, copy webo.map and config.webo to the directory texmf/dvips/config. Add the contents of webo.map permanently to the font map or call dvips with the option -Pwebo . 5) If you are using VTeX/Free, copy webo.ali to the directory texmf/vtex/config; add an entry for webo.ali to the Type1 section of the configuration files pdf.fm and ps.fm, In order to typeset the examples on Unix, you can simply use the included Makefile: just type "make samples". Otherwise run the files manually through LaTeX. They require the fancyhdr package; in addition, the Makefile calls dvips with the option -Pcmz, so the configuration file config.cmz should be available on your system. The supplied .fd file declares a font family named "webo" with the encoding being "U" for the Web-O-Mints font. Take a look at the source code of the examples to see how it can be used. Enjoy! ********* news ********* news *********** news ******** news ********* Important changes have been introduced with the current release of this package; these changes were performed by the same Walter Schmidt who first named in comp.text.tex these fonts. The files webo8r.tfm, webo8t.tfm and webo8t.vf were replaced with one single file WebOMintsGD.tfm, since the Web-O-Mints font is no longer reencoded. The font map file webo.map has changed accordingly. Within LaTeX, the font family "webo" is now declared with the encoding "U" instead of "T1". Thus, the new font definition file uwebo.fd replaces the former t1webo.fd. In case you have installed a previous release, please update your TeX system accordingly. -- Maurizio Loreti http://www.pd.infn.it/~loreti/mlo.html Univ. of Padova, Dept. of Physics - Padova, Italy firstname.lastname@example.org
