CTAN Submission – lettrine

Date: November 12, 2003 10:31:42 AM CET
----- Forwarded message from Daniel Flipo ----- I have just uploaded into ftp.dante.de/incoming a file lettrine.tar.gz, which contains an upgrade (V 1.5) of the lettrine package designed to typeset various sorts of dropped capitals. It should replace the old version in 'macros/latex/contrib/lettrine'. The license is unchanged (LPPL). This release offers a new functionality: % Instead of giving optional parameters to the |\lettrine| command, % it is now possible to set them on a per character basis in a % second config file (this was suggested by Pascal Kockaert): % |\renewcommand{\DefaultOptionsFile}{|\textit{filename}|}| % in the preamble (or anywhere in the document) will % force each call to |\lettrine| to read the file \textit{filename}. % See examples of such config files in the subdirectory % \file{contrib}. Thanks for the upload. I installed it as suggested replacing the previous version in CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/lettrine Reinhard Zierke for the CTAN team

lettrine – Typeset dropped capitals

The lettrine package supports various dropped capitals styles, typically those described in the French typographic books. In particular, it has facilities for the paragraph text’s left edge to follow the outline of capitals that have a regular shape (such as “A” and “V”).
