Hans, Thanks again for the new code. I tried it in my document with my stationary, but it did not work. When I create a new test document with the code you suggested, all pages have VERY ODD in the upper left corner. Kind regards, Robert h h extern wrote:

In the last days, I played around with some truetype fonts, preparing them for use with ConTeXt by creating tfms via the texnansi encoding. Some of these truetypes have expert features embedded into their glyphs. texnansi automatically takes care of integrating the ff, ffi and ffl ligatures.

Also, what does mktexlsr refer to I don't know how it really works, so I can only explain this in layman's terms. If you look in your texmf directory, you should see a ls-R file. If you have a texmf-local tree, there should be one there too. These ls-R files make up a database that are

[NTG-context] lack of hyphenation

2005-02-26 Thread Ciro A. Soto
The knowlegeable John Culleton said in one of the lists that he could recognize if a book was typeset with MS-word by looking at the rivers and the lack of hyphenation. I then checked my 310-page book I am typesetting with context and not a single line had a hyphenated word at the end. So, my

RE: [NTG-context] lack of hyphenation

Ciro, From a purely typographical point of view, a hyphenated word is always better than excessive space between words in a line (which is more discernable to the eye). However, depending on column width, the language the text is typeset in, and the algorithm that is used for hyphenation

This is good stuff. I've tried to advocate a naming convention that would be appropriate to this. I would suggest calling this texnansi-osfsc.enc, as baseencoding-variant.enc. This is so a modified encoding can masquerade as the base encoding within ConTeXt. Given this encoding with my
