$Id: README 5191 2013-02-23 00:11:18Z karl $ texinfo/contrib/texifont/README Everything in this directory is public domain. The main source file is fsel.tex, tested by ftest.tex, documentation (such as it is) in texifont.txi. The story here is that Oleg Katsitadze and I (Karl Berry) collaborated in the mid-2000s on a new font system for Texinfo (and that could work with Eplain). Oleg wrote essentially all the code, while I advised on the design, etc. The idea was to support all the widely-available free font families and widely used input encodings. getting away from of the current hardwiring of Computer Modern in texinfo.tex. The example at the end of documentation gives the basic flavor. As it stands, it is not hooked into texinfo.tex or Texinfo documents at all. That is not the hard part :). Unfortunately, it never came to fruition. Even more unfortunately, Oleg and I can't even give any real specifics of what the "next thing" to do is, we've lost the details in the haze of time. As I recall, the current problem was something about caching of glyphs to avoid unnecessary (and greatly excessive) switching of fonts. In addition, "attributes" (fattr.tex) were starting to come into play. But it all remains a work in progress. Anyway, I'm not sanguine about anyone ever doing anything with this, but just in case some super-duper TeX hacker has too much time on their hands :) and wants to pick it up, here it is.
