The latest version of this license is in http://www.latex-project.org/lppl.txt and version 1.3 or later is part of all distributions of LaTeX version 2005/12/01 or later. This work has the LPPL maintenance status `maintained'. The Current Maintainer of this work is Clea F. Rees. This work consists of all files listed in manifest.txt. All TeX Font Metric files (suffix .tfm in subdirectory fonts/tfm), Virtual Fonts (suffix .vf in subdirectory fonts/vf) etc. are derived from the relevant Latin Modern fonts, version 2.004, released by GUST and available from http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/latin-modern. The TFM and VF files are derived specifically from the Adobe Font Metric (suffix .afm) and TeX Font Metric (suffix .tfm) files supplied with the postscript type 1 version of the fonts. The encoding t1-clm.etx is derived from the file t1.etx supplied with fontinst. A copy of fontinst including an unmodified copy of t1.etx is available from http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/utilities/fontinst. Warning - Experimental ---------------------- When I first released this package onto an unsuspecting (and largely uninterested) world, I included the following warning: This package is EXPERIMENTAL. I have never released any kind of software before. I know nothing about it. I have tested this package on every system I can - that is, on one machine running one OS. Mine. It works for me. I've been using this package as my primary font package for months and it has worked fine. But it may not work for you. Although I am pretty sure it won't run off with your savings - a fact possibly worth mentioning in the current climate - or sit around drinking your coffee and raiding your fridge, it will not surprise me if it just doesn't work. If it doesn't work, please let me know what goes wrong as I would like to fix it if I can. That's a big if, though, so if you know how to fix it, telling me that would be even better. This version of the package has benefited greatly from feedback provided by Enrico Gregorio, who essentially rewrote the style file using keyval to show me how I ought to be setting the various options up, and Lars Hellström who demonstrated considerable patience in answering my many questions about using fontinst and some peculiarities of the Latin Modern fonts. Nonetheless, would-be users should bear the above warning in mind. Although I trust the package enough for it to be my default font package for most purposes, it does not mean you should. You should examine the output especially carefully if you typeset accented characters, especially those which do not occur in English or Welsh text as these are the only languages I typeset more than a word or two of once in a blue moon.

cfr-lm – Enhanced support for the Latin Modern fonts
The package supports a number of features of the Latin Modern
fonts which are not easily accessible via the default (La)TeX
support provided in the official distribution. In particular, the
package supports the use of the various styles of digits
available, small-caps and upright italic shapes, and alternative
weights and widths. It also supports variable width typewriter and
the “quotation” font. Version 2.004 of the Latin
Modern fonts is supported.
By default, the package uses proportional oldstyle digits and variable width typewriter but this can be changed by passing appropriate options to the package. The package also supports using (for example) different styles of digits within a document so it is possible to use proportional oldstyle digits by default, say, but tabular lining digits within a particular table.
The package requires the official Latin Modern distribution, including its (La)TeX support. The package relies on the availability of both the fonts themselves and the official font support files. The package also makes use of the nfssext-cfr package.
Only the T1 and TS1 encodings are supported for text fonts. The set up of fonts for mathematics is identical to that provided by Latin Modern.
