TengwarScript package for LaTeX version 1.3.1, July 2014 Author: Ignacio Fernández Galván (Jellby): firstname.lastname@example.org Homepage: http://djelibeibi.unex.es/tengwar INTRODUCTION The TengwarScript package aim is to provide a mid-level access to tengwar fonts while still generating good output by default. Each tengwar sign has an individual command, wich should place the sign nicely with relation to the preceding signs. So, to write the word "quetta" in Quenya mode one would write: \Tquesse\TTacute\Ttinco\TTdoubler\TTthreedots For long texts, all this typing would be too cumbersome, so it is advised to use an automatic transcriber. The recommended one is "ptt" (Perl tengwar transcriber), which can be found in the above homepage. Note: This package needs a tengwar font to work properly. Which fonts are supported and how to install them can be found in the documentation. ENC, VF, TFM and MAP files are included in the package. QUICK INSTALATION (These steps work in tetex 3.0, [TEXMF] is preferably the local or user texmf tree) 1. "latex tengwarscript.dtx" to get the documentation. 2. "latex tengwarscript.ins" to get the package files. 3. a) Move *.sty and *.cfg into [TEXMF]/tex/latex/tengwarscript/. b) Move *.tfm into [TEXMF]/fonts/tfm/tengwarscript/. c) Move *.enc into [TEXMF]/fonts/enc/tengwarscript/. d) Move *.vf into [TEXMF]/fonts/vf/tengwarscript/. e) Move tengwarscript.map into [TEXMF]/fonts/map/dvips/. 4. Download the tengwar fonts (see documentation). You may need to rename some files to match the names in the .map file. You can use the included script install-tengwar-scripts.sh to automate the download and rename. 5. Move *.ttf into [TEXMF]/fonts/truetype/tengwarscript/ or *.pfb into [TEXMF]/fonts/type1/tengwarscript/. 6. Add "Map tengwarscript.map" to updmap.cfg. 7. "texhash" to refresh the database. 8. "updmap" or "updmap-sys" to update the configuration.

TengwarScript – LaTeX support for using Tengwar fonts
The package provides “mid-level” access to tengwar fonts, providing good quality output. Each tengwar sign is represented by a command, which will place the sign nicely in relation to previous signs.
A transcription package is available from the package’s home page: writing all those tengwar commands would quickly become untenable.
The package supports the use of a wide variety of tengwar fonts that are available from the net; metric and map files are provided for all the supported fonts.
