Re: [NTG-context] a problem with \defineprotrudefactor

i've been messing around with that because thanh is updating his
stuff; i need to handle both hz and protruding and more -) 

I must ask: would this mean adding Context support for the font
expansion mentioned in his thesis? I've wanted to experiment with that
but as far as I can tell it has previously required too much (for
me) font manipulation outside of tex.

It is true that generating extended font metrics (e.g. cmr10+5.tfm) was 
a bit deterrent thing for pdfTeX users.

It was the reason that Thanh enabled (some months ago) use hz WITHOUT a 
need of generating extended metrics. But there was some problems with 
this pdftex version so it coused some delay. Now I believe it will be 
reflected in ConTeXt support. (I do not know what Hans thinks by and 
more but I reckon he means some code clean up).

After that we will need:
1) new ConTeXt
2) new pdftex binary

the next release of pdftex will do things automatically, so you don't need to define all those special tfm files any more; context will provide a mechanism for controling things (works ok as far as i can test)

[NTG-context] a problem with \defineprotrudefactor

2004-07-15 Thread Bill McClain
After a long lull, I have installed a recent Context (ver: 2004.6.30)
and find that my typescripts that do margin kerning are having trouble.
Invoking a typescript that uses \defineprotrudefactor will cause the job
to stop; I don't see any error messages. When the problem line is
commented out the job completes.

I've attached a minimal example.
