Introduction ------------ xpinyin is a LaTeX package written to simplify the input of Hanyu Pinyin. The package provides macros to automatically add pinyin to Chinese characters. It can only be used in conjunction with xeCJK or CJKutf8 package. Given that the implementation of pinyin package of CJK bundle is not very well, it seems that xpinyin is a good replacement of it. You can read the package manual (in Chinese) for more detailed explanations. It may be distributed and/or modified under the conditions of the LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL), either version 1.3c 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 1.3 or later is part of all distributions of LaTeX version 2005/12/01 or later. This work has the LPPL maintenance status "maintained". The Current Maintainer of this work is Qing Lee. This package consists of the file xpinyin.dtx, xpinyin-map.cfg, and the derived files xpinyin.sty, xpinyin.pdf, xpinyin.ins and README (this file). Author ------ Qing Lee Email: firstname.lastname@example.org If you are interested in the process of development you may observe http://code.google.com/p/ctex-kit/ Installation ------------ The package is supplied in dtx format and as a pre-extracted zip file, xpinyin.tds.zip. The later is most convenient for most users: simply unzip this in your local texmf directory and run texhash to update the database of file locations. If you want to unpack the dtx yourself, running "xetex xpinyin.dtx" will extract the package whereas "xelatex xpinyin.dtx" will extract it and also typeset the documentation. The package requires LaTeX3 support as provided in the l3kernel and l3packages bundles. Both of these are available on CTAN as ready-to-install zip files. Suitable versions are available in the latest version of MiKTeX and TeX Live (updating the relevant packages online may be necessary). To compile the documentation without error, you will need the xeCJK package and some specific Chinese Simplified fonts (TrueType or OpenType).
