README
This is the README for the OldStandardT1 package, version
2016-06-28.

This package provides LaTeX and pdfLaTeX support for the Old
Standard family of fonts, designed by Alexey Kryukov. Old
Standard reproduces a specific type of Modern (classicist)
style of serif typefaces, very commonly used in various
editions of the late 19th and early 20th century, but almost
completely abandoned later. However, this lettertype still
has at least two advantages:

  + it can be considered a good choice for typesetting
    scientific papers, especially in social and humanitarian
    sciences, as its specific features are closely
    associated in people's eyes with old books they learned
    on; 

 +  the most beautiful examples of Greek and Cyrillic
    lettertypes were all based on the classicist style,
    so for those scripts, "Modern" fonts are much more
    appropriate than any contemporary (e. g. Times-based)
    designs.

To install this package on a TDS-compliant
TeX system download the file
"tex-archive"/install/fonts/oldstandardt1.tds.zip where the
preferred URL for "tex-archive" is http://mirrors.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 OldStandard.map.

To use, add

\usepackage{OldStandardT1}

to the preamble of your document. This will activate
OldStandard as the main (serifed) text font. Regular,
Italic and Bold styles are available.

LuaLaTeX and xeLaTeX users may also use OldStandardT1.sty
but should install the oldstandard package at CTAN to obtain
the OpenType fonts. If they prefer type1 fonts or wish to
avoid fontspec they may use the type1 option.

Options scaled=<number> or scale=<number> may be used to
scale the fonts.

The only figure style is proportional-lining.
Font encodings supported are OT1, T1, LY1 and TS1.

The original OpenType fonts were obtained from

https://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/oldstandard

and are licensed under the SIL Open Font License, version
1.1; the text may be found in the doc directory. The type1
versions and the LaTeX support files were created using
autoinst and are licensed under the terms of the LaTeX
Project Public License. The maintainer of this package is
