The metrix package can be used to print the prosodics/metrics
of (latin) verses. It provides macros to typeset the symbols
stand alone and in combination with syllables (including
automatic alignment like seen above). Furthermore it defines a
new brevis and a longa accent and a bow to contract syllables.
