The Latin Modern family of fonts are based on the Computer Modern fonts
in the PostScript Type 1 format, released into public domain by the
American Mathematical Society. The fonts, as compared to the CM family,
contain a lot of additional characters, mainly accented ones, but not only.
The current package for TeX users contains:
Latin Modern fonts in the PostScript Type 1 format plus all requisites
for using the fonts with TeX/pdfTeX; there is one set of PostScript fonts
and five sets of TeX Font Metric files, corresponding to:
-- EC (Cork) encoding (ec-*.tfm),
-- QX encoding (qx-*.tfm),
-- TeX'n'ANSI aka LY1 encoding (texnansi-*.tfm),
-- T5 (Vietnamese) encoding (t5-*.tfm),
-- Text Companion for EC fonts aka TS1 (ts1-*.tfm).
LaTeX *.sty and *.fd files were also added plus a few test files.
Thanks for the upload.
