:Abstract: Set up the Zapf Chancery font as script (calligraphic) math

           **Obsoleted by the urwchancal_ package.**


:0.1:  2011-02-03  first published version
:0.2:  2011-03-28  documentation update: deprecated by urwchancal_


The `pzccal` package sets up the Zapf Chancery font (pzcmi7t) as
script (calligraphic) math alphabet ``\mathpzc``. It provides options
to scale the font and to configure the alias command name. By default,
`pzccal` overwrites the predefined math alphabet command ``\mathcal``.

The urwchancal_ package (developed independently and published less
than a month after pzcal.sty) provides not only a style file but also
virtual fonts solving problems with accents and spacing.  Like
`pzcal`, it provides both lowercase and capital Latin math script
letters. It is highly recommended to use ``urwchancal.sty`` instead of

The bidirectional text <-> code converter PyLit_ can convert between
``pzccal.sty`` and ``pzccal.sty.txt``.

The Python Docutils_ and pdflatex were used to generate the HTML and PDF
documentation from the reStructuredText_ sources.


This package uses fonts from the PSNFSS bundle.
It also requires kvoptions_.


* Unpack (preferably in a TDS_ documentation folder).

* Make sure LaTeX can find pzccal.sty:

  Copy/Move/Link it to a suitable place in the TDS_ and run ``texhash``
  or place it in the current working directory (e.g. for testing).


It is highly recommended to use urwchancal_::


instead of ::

pzc­cal – Zapf Chancery as cal­li­graphic math al­pha­bet

The pack­age es­tab­lishes the Zapf Chancery font (pzcmi7t) as script (cal­li­graphic) math al­pha­bet \math­pzc. It pro­vides op­tions to scale the font and to con­fig­ure the alias com­mand name. By de­fault, the pack­age over­writes the pre­de­fined math al­pha­bet com­mand \math­cal.

The au­thor has now de­clared the pack­age ob­so­lete, since he be­lieves that the ur­wchan­cal pack­age does the job bet­ter.
