This is the file README of the T2 package. T2 package is Copyright 1997-1999 Werner Lemberg, Vladimir Volovich and any individual authors listed elsewhere in package files. It may be distributed under the conditions of the LaTeX Project Public License, either version 1.1 of this license or (at your option) any later version. The latest version of this license is in http://www.latex-project.org/lppl.txt and version 1.1 or later is part of all distributions of LaTeX version 1999/06/01 or later. The `T2' package is available at CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/t2 ftp://ftp.vsu.ru/pub/tex/t2-current.tar.gz Starting with the 1998/12/01 release, LaTeX2e officially supports new standard Cyrillic font encodings (T2A, T2B, T2C, X2) and various Cyrillic input encodings, which form the `cyrillic' bundle of the official LaTeX distribution (CTAN:macros/latex/required/cyrillic). Installation procedure is described in the file `00readme.txt' which is part of the `cyrillic' bundle. Note: the `cyrillic' bundle will not work with LaTeX2e releases older than 1998/12/01. Starting with the version 3.6k, BABEL system officially supports T2 encodings. You can get the distribution at CTAN:macros/latex/required/babel The installation and usage of Cyrillic in LaTeX are also described in the file `cyrguide.tex' which is part of the base LaTeX2e distribution. In particular, in addition to the `cyrillic' bundle you will need at least LH fonts and hyphenation patterns. The latest version of the LH fonts package (v3.20) which supports T2A, T2B, T2C, X2 standard Cyrillic TeX font encodings (and also LCY, OT2, and some other encodings) is available at CTAN:fonts/cyrillic/lh http://www.cemi.rssi.ru/cyrtug/files/cyremtex.98 http://www.cemi.rssi.ru/cyrtug/eng/news.htm ftp://ftp.vsu.ru/pub/tex/lhfnt-3.20.tar.gz You can find a collection of Russian hyphenation patterns which support T2 (and other) font encodings in a `ruhyphen' package at CTAN:language/hyphenation/ruhyphen ftp://ftp.vsu.ru/pub/tex/ruhyphen.tar.gz Some additional support files and packages are located in subdirectories of the `T2' package. * the `mathtext' package which makes it possible to use Cyrillic letters `transparently' in math formulae. To generate the package file `mathtext.sty', run the command "latex mathtext.ins". The package supports an option `warn', which will produce warning messages in case of using Cyrillic letters in math formulae. Load this package _before_ babel and/or fontenc. * the package `citehack.sty' redefines some of the LaTeX commands in order to make it possible to use Cyrillic letters as arguments of \cite and \bibitem commands (it is not specific to Cyrillic; the same problems would arise if one will try to use characters defined via the inputenc package as labels or notes of \cite and \bibitem commands). It also makes it possible to use inputenc-generated characters in \label and \ref arguments. This is a temporary hack. Hopefully, the corresponding commands will be corrected in the next release of LaTeX2e. * read a `README' file in the `etc/rubibtex' directory if you are using bibtex. * read a `README' file in the `etc/rumkidx' directory if you are using makeindex. * the directory `examples' contains some examples which demonstrate usage of Cyrillic packages. In particular, the `example1.tex' contains examples of using different Cyrillic font encodings and input encodings in LaTeX. * read a `README' file in the `cyrplain' directory if you would like to use Cyrillic in Plain TeX based macro-packages. * the `cyrfinst' directory contains Cyrillic support for fontinst package. * the `enc-maps' directory contains various mappings for charsets and encodings. There are mailing lists devoted to problems of Cyrillic and multilingual TeX and T2 encodings, where you can try to get support on setting up and using Cyrillic packages with TeX & friends.
