Greek Metafont for TeX/LateX available
TeX/LaTeX Koine Greek users:
I have made version 0.2 of my Greek Metafont MELANOS available on
tartarus.uwa.edu.au in directory /pub/jtauber/melanos.
It differs from other Greek Metafonts in that the diacritics are
placed AFTER the letter they apply to. This should make it easier to
use Greek texts based on the CATSS/CCAT/TLG system of transliteration.
Those familiar with this system will note that both the grave and
iota-subscript have been changed to avoid problems when using TeX.
[ CATSS/CCAT/TLG files can be made compatible with MELANOS simply by
doing a search-and-replace to change \ to ` and | to ! ]
Please note that this is still an early release with a simple mono-width sans
serif style. Updates should be available frequently from:
tartarus.uwa.edu.au in the directory /pub/jtauber/melanos
Please send any criticisms and/or suggestions to
Hope this is of use to people. I'm a linguistics student and not a font
designer so don't expect a beautifully designed font (yet :-)
