This is the README for the ebgaramond package, version 

This package provides LaTeX, pdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX
support for the EB Garamond family of fonts, designed by
Georg Duffner (Regular and Italic) and Octavio Pardo (Bold,
Semibold and Extrabold).

EB Garamond is a revival of the 16th century fonts designed
by Claude Garamont. The source for the letterforms is
a scan of a specimen known as the "Berner specimen",
which, composed in 1592 by Conrad Berner, son-in-law of
Christian Egenolff and his successor at the Egenolff
print office, shows Garamont's roman and Granjon's italic
fonts at different sizes. Hence the name of this project:
Egenolff-Berner Garamond.

To install this package on a TDS-compliant
TeX system download the file
"tex-archive"/install/fonts/ebgaramond.tds.zip, where the
preferred URL for "tex-archive" is http://mirror.ctan.org.
Unzip the archive at the root of an appropriate texmf tree,
likely a personal or local tree. If necessary, update the
file-name database (e.g., texhash). Update the font-map
files by enabling the Map file EBGaramond.map.

Commands \oldstylenums{...} and \liningnums{...} are defined
to allow for local use of old-style figures or lining
figures, respectively. Similarly, \tabularnums{...} and
\proportionalnums{...} allow for local use of monospaced or
