Copyright 2010-2016 Claudio Beccari

The  bundle contains the files

README                  this file
teubner.txt             a more descriptive file
teubner.dtx             the self extracting documented TeX source file
teubner-doc.tex         an extended documentation file
teubner.pdf             general and technical documentation
teubner-doc.pdf         specific documentation with examples

The bundle is distributed under the LPPL license version 1.3c or any later version.

The bundle has the status of author maintained.

The main purpose of this bundle is to provide classical philologists with some
means for typesetting their documents that usually contain very specific mark up.
This version allows the typesetter to use both "italic" shapes: the Olga-like
and the Lipsian-like ones; it complies with the LICR (LaTeX Internal Character
Representation) of the Greek glyphs that avoid the kerning problems that arise 
with the ligature mechanism embedded in the LGR encoded default CBfonts; it is 
compatible with the use of different vector Latin Type 1 fonts; 
contains new designs for the horizontally stretchable markers, et cetera.

Running pdflatex on the .dtx file produces both the documentation and  
extracts the byproduct files teubner.sty, teubnertx.sty, teubner.pdf.  
The readable extended documentation file teubner-doc.pdf is obtained by running 
pdflatex on the teubner-doc.tex file.

Moreover this teubner package generates on the fly the font description files 
necessary to use the LGR encoded Greek fonts with some non standard TeX 
PostScript fonts; for example, it automatically generates the necessary files if using 
the TX or the PX fonts; with other Type 1 fonts the necessary .fd files require 
manual intervention, which simply means giving a suitable command from within another 
open file that loads teubner.

Please, be sure to work with a 2010 updated collection of the CBfonts; with a 2014 
updated version of the TeX system; with a babel version 3.9g or later; with the 
language description file greek.ldf version 1.9b or later. The teubner package works also with previous versions of the above pieces of software, but with limited performances.

teubner – Philological typesetting of classical Greek

An extension to babel greek option for typesetting classical Greek with a philological approach. The package works with the author’s greek fonts using the ‘Lispiakos’ font shape derived from that of the fonts used in printers’ shops in Lispia.

The package name honours the publisher B.G. Teubner Verlaggesellschaft whose Greek text publications are of high quality.
