CTAN up­date: FPL Fonts

Date: Fe­bru­ary 13, 2005 4:35:08 PM CET
On Sun, 13 Feb 2005 Ralf Stub­ner sub­mit­ted ver­sion 1.002 of the FPL fonts pack­age. The FPL Fonts pro­vide a set of SC/OsF fonts for URW Pal­la­dio L which are com­pat­i­ble with re­spect to met­rics with the Palatino SC/OsF fonts from the orig­i­nal Adobe fonts. The SC and OsF in the FPL Fonts were de­signed with the glyphs from URW Pal­la­dio L as start­ing point. For some glyphs (eg 'o') I got the best re­sult by scal­ing and bold­en­ing. For oth­ers (eg 'h') shift­ing se­lected por­tions of the char­ac­ter gave more sat­is­fy­ing re­sults. All this was done us­ing the free font ed­i­tor Fon­tForge (http://font­forge.sf.net). The kern­ing data in these fonts comes from Wal­ter Sch­midt's im­proved Palatino met­rics. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /fonts/fpl/ Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: FPL Fonts -- SC/OsF for URW Pal­la­dio L Li­cense type: gpl An­nounce­ment text:
Mi­nor change in the in­ter­nal font struc­ture: Re­frain from us­ing 'div' for com­pat­i­bil­ity rea­sons.
Thanks for the up­date. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

fpl – SC and OsF fonts for URW Pal­la­dio L

The FPL Fonts pro­vide a set of SC/OsF fonts for URW Pal­la­dio L which are com­pat­i­ble with re­spect to met­rics with the Palatino SC/OsF fonts from Adobe. Note that it is not my aim to ex­actly re­pro­duce the out­lines of the orig­i­nal Adobe fonts. The SC and OsF in the FPL Fonts were de­signed with the glyphs from URW Pal­la­dio L as start­ing point. For some glyphs (e.g. ‘o’) I got the best re­sult by scal­ing and bold­en­ing. For oth­ers (e.g. ‘h’) shift­ing se­lected por­tions of the char­ac­ter gave more sat­is­fy­ing re­sults. All this was done us­ing the free font ed­i­tor Fon­tForge. The kern­ing data in these fonts comes from Wal­ter Sch­midt’s im­proved Palatino met­rics.

use is en­abled by the math­pazo pack­age, which is part of the psnfss dis­tri­bu­tion.
