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 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

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.

Moreover, version 1.4 adds experimental support for microtype. While this 
should work fine since it basically uses the settings for Latin Modern and
Computer Modern Roman, I'm far from confident about this.

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.
