Re: [NTG-context] Times New Roman

2008-12-01 Thread Steve Peter

 Termes is a TeX Gyre version of Times Roman (almost the same glyphs).

Which stems from URW Nimbus, a clone of Linotype version of Times Roman.

 Times New Roman is a Microsoft version of Times Roman.

Actually, TNR is the Monotype version of the typeface, licensed by  
Microsoft, but with widths adjusted to match Times Roman, which was a  
Linotype typeface. To make matters more fun, Apple licensed its  
version from Linotype. And for cosmic revenge, Monotype bought  
Linotype, so there's just one company now.

 Times New Roman is more illegible than Times Roman.

The only design differences are minimal. The serifs of C and S, for  
example, are more vertical in the Monotype version, and the italic z  
is more calligraphic in the Linotype version, but in large part, the  
two versions are identical. Personally, for book text, I think you  
ought to use Times Ten, which is designed for that. Both Times Roman  
and Times New Roman were originally designed as newspapers typefaces  
to be set on very short measures and are therefore too narrow for book  
use.

2. {\tfx font size ??}

What are the advantages of each? I would think that option (1) would
be the simplest and clearest to use.
Consider 1 vs. 2 if your editor or journal said, ``No, we don't want 
12pt text, we want 10pt text.'' If you've used option 1, you will have 
to go through and find every instance of where you've changed the size, 
whereas option 2 will scale with you.

The Aleph project aims to build a usable version of Omega, 
incorporating e-TeX extensions from the NTS project.

Two sets of concerns have provided impetus to the project: first, that 
many users need the e-TeX extensions, and they're not on the Omega 
development path; and second, that the Omega project is currently 
immersed in radical restructuring of Omega, and is not able to be 
particularly responsive to user requirements in the short term. In the 
longer term, the Aleph project hope that their work will be rendered 
irrelevant by the development of Omega proper.

The current pre-release snapshot of Aleph resides on CTAN with the 
rather modest name of e-Omega. Follow development by subscribing to the
