Directory fonts/t1-fraktur

All modifications are enumerated in CHANGELOG.

The most important changes are:
- letters L, l, d, t with caron
- ligature ft (you can switch it off if you don't like it)
- ligature *J for alternative J glyph
- old umlauts *a *e *o *u are working again
- IL2 (CS) encoded fonts (fkl2*)
- *.fd files for IL2 and OT1 encoding

IL2 encoding is used mostly by Czech and Slovak TeX users, using
CSTeX.  This encoding is fully compatible with old TeX encoding (OT1),
i.e. charcters 0-127 are the same as in original Computer Modern fonts,
so you can use IL2 font as if it were an OT1 font. Actually the *.fd files
provided do it this way :)

However, fraktur font does not contain all characters from OT1 encoding
(notably the Greek letters) and I have placed the extra ligatures and
old umlauted letters in those empty slots.

Characters 128-255 correspond to ISO-8859-2 (ISO Latin-2) with few
exceptions and a few extra characters. All accented letters from
ISO Latin-2 are in the right place (except for \c{t}), so you can
write documents directly in ISO and forget about combinig letters and
accents. Write "h��ek" instead of "h\'a\v cek" :).

t1-fraktur – A pair of fraktur font families in T1 encoding

These fonts were (it seems) originally developed for use with Czech and other Eastern European languages, and then extended for more general use. They don't, in fact, cover the entire T1 encoding, but they come pretty close. The fonts are distributed as source.

Both font families come in both upright and "slanted" shape, and in both medium and bold weight (an interesting choice, given that the “medium” is already pretty heavy).
