This accompanies the teubner bundle version 4.x dated December 2013.

Copyright 2010-2013 Claudio Beccari

The  bundle contains the files

README                  this file
teubner.txt             a more descriptive file
teubner.dtx             the self extracting documented TeX source file
teubner-doc.tex         an extended documentation file
teubner.pdf             general and technical documentation
teubner-doc.pdf         specific documentation with examples

The bundle is distributed under the LPPL license version 1.3c or any later version.

The bundle has the status of author maintained.

The main purpose of this bundle is to provide classical philologists with some
means for typesetting their documents that usually contain very specific notation.

This new version allows the typesetter to use both "italic" shapes: the Olga-like
and the Lipsian-like ones; it complies with the LICR (LaTeX Internal Character
Representation) of the Greekk gluphs that avoid the kerning problems that arise 
with the ligature mechanism embedded in the LGR encoded default CBfonts; it is 
compatible with the use of different scalable Latin Type~1 fonts; 
contains new designs for the horizontally stretchable markers, et cetera.

Running pdflatex on the dtx file produces both the documentation and the 
extraction of the byproduct files teubner.sty, teubnertx.sty, teubner.pdf.  
The readable extended documentation file teubner-doc.pdf is obtained by running 
pdflatex on the teubner-doc.tex file.

Moreover this teubner package generates on the fly the font description files 
necessary to use the LGR encoded Greek fonts with some non standard TeX 
PostScript fonts; for example, it automatically generates the necessary files if using 
the TX or the PX fonts; with other Type 1 fonts the necessary .fd files require 
manual intervention, which simply means giving a suitable command from within another 
open file that loads teubner.

Please, be sure to work with a 2010 updated collection of the CBfonts, and with a 2013 uptdated version of the TeX system.
