you wrote this before and i used now the ttf version in the example i

No, maybe this weekend I will able to investigate a bit more .

The problem is the follow:
pdf make with felltypes and mkiv looks ugly in AdobeReader9 ---but not in
xpdf with latest freetype -- because of a unsual em size.
If you install the fonts in OpenOffice, the same document looks ok.


$pdffonts felltype.pdf
name type  emb sub uni object ID
 - --- --- --- -
PDPWHW+LMRoman12-Regular CID Type 0C   yes yes yes  4  0
DUTOMC+IM_FELL_Double_Pica_PRO_Roman CID Type 0C   yes yes yes  5  0

$pdffonts felltype_oo.pdf
name type  emb sub uni object ID
 - --- --- --- -
FTLUYL+IM_FELL_Double_Pica_PRO_Roman Type 1C   yes yes no   8  0
FTLUYL+IM_FELL_Double_Pica_PRO_Roman Type 1C

So I don't understand how OO transform this opentype in a Type1 ,
and if is it possible to do  the same thing in mkiv.

yes, a sort of creation of font encodings at fly for more than 256 glyphs --
but why ?
Also, does it fix em size, given that this appears to be the root of the

Maybe to get around that bug^H^H^Hfeature in AR8 and AR9 that
causes distress in mkiv, but more likely is that they believed
the reencoding to Type1c was easier to handle than dealing with
CID fonts.

 Also, does it fix em size, given that this appears to be the root of the
 problem ?

No, it fixes nothing. It just works around the issue. The cause of
the problem is that AR8 and AR9 *require* Type0 fonts to have 1000
units/em, otherwise the glyph drawing routine outputs an incorrectly
scaled object. There is no such limitation for Type1C fonts, and
that is why it works ok there (at least for now, who knows what AR10
will bring ...)

No, it needs engine support which is not present. Fastest solution:
open the font in fontforge and fix the units, save under a different

 arthur told me that can arise rounding errors.

  You have to remember I used to be a mathematician.  I say things that
are meant to be true, not meant to be helpful :-)

  If you want to be sure that LuaTeX's output looks right in the most
recent versions of Adobe Reader, editing the font is the way to go
(although there might be license issues with commercial fonts).  Of
course conversion is not perfect, but you can't have it both way!
Besides, the metrics won't change if you only modify upm; only the
outlines do.

 I should try to convert to Type1 instead

  That should indeed work if you don't need more than 256 glyphs in the
font (are you *sure* you don't?).

  If Luigi is concerned with rounding errors, he shouldn't do that:
while the coordinates of the points on the curve wouldn't change, all
the control points would need to be recalculated due to the conversion
from cubic to quadratic splines.  On the other hand, if you keep CFF
outlines and reset the units per em size from 2048 to 1000, you're of
course exposed to rounding errors, but all the original points are
retained, both points on the curve and control points -- thus it's much
less error-prone, in my opinion.

Rounding errors are not that important in this case, and there
are downsides to both (o3-o2 touches *only* control points, so in
some sense it is more precise than upm change). What's normally more
important is that if you convert to ttf, you will loose all hinting

  On what printer?  It's probably a bug in the driver, too.  LuaTeX does
exactly according to specification, I discussed this strategy with Taco
years ago.  I suppose XeTeX does conform, too, and it came to that
arrangement independently.  It's really sad that Adobe does not conform

what I mean is:
chose an encoding
convert otf to type1 as is,
make a pdf with mkiv
check if it's ok.

It's only for experiment , of course:
Fell type come with a native ttf edition which is OK (or better, really OK),

[NTG-context] MKIV, fonts, confusion

2009-05-13 Thread afsmith
Hi ntg-context.

I'm very confused about accomplishing something that to me seems as
though it should be quite simple, but has proven for weeks of
occasional attempts to be very confusing. I'm finding existing
information from the contextgarden wiki and ntg-context archives to be
very newbie-unfriendly and inconsistent.
I'm compelled to improve the wiki, if only I could comprehend what I
would be documenting.

What I would like to do is use the full range of TeX-Gyre fonts (and
later possibly others) for my existing documents.
It is not clear to me...
Whether or not I am using MKIV, nor how to determine which engine I am running.
If not running MKIV/XeTeX, how to determine which fonts are installed.
What the items from the output of fc-list or mtxrun --script fonts
--list correspond to.
How to use available fonts, nor where to draw valid parameters from
for use in font commands.
How to determine what font configurations are available for a given font.
Whether I need to write typescripts, nor how to find any existing ones.
Whether I need to concern myself with .map or any other font files.
Whether I need to configure anything, move any files, etcetera.
...As well as anything else I might need to install or use a font

For what it's worth, I have been using the command texexec to
process my tex files, am using a context minimals downloaded about two
months ago, and am running Linux.

it depends on you language ...

the main complication with fonts is that in traditional tex there are 
only 256 slots in a font available


also, fonts relate to hyphenation

another complication is that traditional tex fonts come in design sizes

now, for english you can ignore encoding issues but not for other languages

using the gyre fonts is not that complex as one of the objectives of the 
project is to provide consistent sets of fonts


\usetypescript[palatino][ec] % pdftex, one needs to choose an encoding

\usetypescript[palatino] % luatex, no encoding since unicode

and then

\setupbodyfont[palatino]

should for instance give you palatino

things like open type features etc etc demand some more knowledge as 
fonts differ considerably in this areas as well as can contain bugs or 
inconsistencies


if you ever have to use commercial fonts .. be prepared ... an even 
bigger mess is awaiting you since naming of files and fonts is often 
quite strange

Luigi, Hans, and Wolfgang, thank you for your responses. I'm still
unclear on several things. (comments on your responses follow
afterwards)

Let me try asking these things as questions. Specifically, could
someone please tell me...
1. How do I determine whether I am using MKII, MKIV, or XeTeX to
process my documents?
2. Given the line from a typescript...
\definefontsynonym[LiberationSerif] [name:liberationserif]
... how do I determine which file name:liberationserif corresponds to?
3. In both MKII and MKIV, how can I determine which typescripts exist?
In other words, how do I determine working arguments for
\usetypescriptfile?
3b. Specifically, in the case of...
\usetypescript[palatino][ec]
... in which typescript is this defined? (given a vanilla context
minimals installation)
4. What defines the output of fc-list or mtxrun --script fonts
--list? Do they correspond to files? Type synonyms? etc.
5. Do I need to bother with map files for MKII?
6. Is it particularly recommended that I use MKIV? How stable is it
compared to MKII?

Luigi, what do you mean by and look into base/*? Which 'base'? Are
you talking about in the context minimals distribution? some specific
online repository? I have seen the two documents you mentioned.
Re-reading them has clarified things a little bit.

Wolfgang,
Currently the module you linked to
(http://bitbucket.org/wolfs/simplefonts/) is beyond my
understanding... I would first like to understand the mechanism your
module operates on before trying to automate it.

Hans,
I am aware that there are such types of parameters that must be
defined for fonts. I understand 'it is complicated' but this does not
really help make things clearer to me. The inner workings of fonts are
of little concern to me to me at the moment. Right now I do not even
know where to look. I have seen the examples you gave for palatino,
such as...
\usetypescript[palatino][ec]
...but I have no idea where those arguments come from

Thanks.

by looking at the file, but at some point i expect users to switch to

that one in type-one (type one font)

mkiv does not use fc-list and as fc-list does not work on my machine i 
have no clue

normally the typescript handles that


6. Is it particularly recommended that I use MKIV? How stable is it

depends on your document; currently somewhat in flux due to

well, palatino is defined in type-one

if ec makes no sense to you, then just use it (polish use qx, i use

Wolfgang,

My module simplifies the use of fonts in MkIV and is similar to the
fontspec package for LaTeX but has one feature which is not available
in fontspec.

Here is a example:

When you wan to use the Delicious fonts [1] from exljbris you need
a typescript which assigns each font to a certain style (upright,
italic, bold ...), you can see the complete typescript for the
Delicious font on the wiki [2].

When you use my module you don't have to create a typescript (this
done by the module when you select a font), you need only the
\setxxxfont commands to set the fonts for the families (serif,
sans and mono). The setup for the delicious fonts is:

\usemodule[simplefonts] % load the module
\setmainfont[Delicious] % set Delicious as main (serif) font

\starttext
\rm\tf roman \it italic \bf bold \bi bolditalic \sc smallcaps
\stoptext

[1] http://www.josbuivenga.demon.nl/delicious.html
[2] 
http://wiki.contextgarden.net/CD_Booklet#Use_Delicious_OTF_font_with_luatex_.2F_mkiv

BTW: ConTeXt ships with complete typescripts for Mac (type-mac.tex)
and Windows (type-win.tex) fonts, more typescripts can be found at
http://bitbucket.org/wolfs/typescripts/.

Depends on how you process your documents.

texexec filename= pdftex engine (mkii)

texexec --xtx filename  = xetex engine  (mkii)

mtxrun --script font --list *liberation*

In other words, how do I determine working arguments for

ls $TEXMFCONTEXT/tex/context/base/type-*


3b. Specifically, in the case of...
\usetypescript[palatino][ec]
... in which typescript is this defined? (given a vanilla context
minimals installation)


type-one.tex for mkii, type-otf.tex for mkiv.


4. What defines the output of fc-list or mtxrun --script fonts
--list? Do they correspond to files? Type synonyms? etc.


mtxrun --script fonts lists fonts in $TEXMF/fonts/ and $OSFONTDIR.


5. Do I need to bother with map files for MKII?


No. Unless you want to create a typescript for font not present in the 
minimals and ctan.



6. Is it particularly recommended that I use MKIV? How stable is it
compared to MKII?


Mkii is extremely stable and well tested. Mkiv is in a state of flux right 
now. If you do not need any of the features of luatex (opentype fonts, 
ease of programming, etc.) stay with mkii for the time being. If you want 
to use luatex features, then you have to use Mkiv :-)
