Special Characters for Times ???

I think I am going to buy a font - there's a really nice one called Mengelt Basel Antiqua. It's opentype. With respect to the URW Antiqua font - the italic is emulated (tfm but no actual .pfb/.pfa) and I wonder if that's the problem when I try using newer than pdflatex engine. Mengelt Basel Antigua ...

Special Characters for Times ???

I'll have to dig up the link I downloaded it from. Just tried xelatex and it seems I didn't install one of my fonts (I'm guessing URW Antiqua) correctly for xelatex - mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi 600 uaqrrc.pfa mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi 600 uaqrrc.pfa mkt...

Special Characters for Times ???

Looks like U+222B could be abused to provide a long s. -=- pdflatex is what I am using, which pretty much limits me to type 1 fonts but OpenType fonts with type 1 outline can usually be converted, within the 256 character limit - or as multiple type 1 fonts if more are needed. I will try specifying ...

Special Characters for Times ???

I've actually switched to URW Antiqua for German written with Roman letters. Times has some problems, for example if an i or j is next to a letter with an umlaut, the dot over the i and j is at a different height than on the umlaut. URW Antiqua does not have that problem. Unfortunately using URW Ant...

Hello! Writing a book...

It could be. It wasn't packaged for CentOS 7 so I took a Fedora src.rpm and rebuilt it, haven't updated it in a very long - so it may have been renamed.

Hello! Writing a book...

Oh for the gory details if anyone is interested - I use TeXLive on CentOS 7 - but I have TeXLive installed in /usr/local from TeXLive I don't use the CentOS packaging, in the distant past with teTeX it frustrated me how often I'd have to stop what I was doing to install RPM packages. Learned my less...

Hello! Writing a book...

Hi - I'm not new to LaTeX but in no means and am expert. About a decade ago I went through the process of creating a package for a commercial monospace font from postscript source, still use it, but at this point I'd have to look up how to do it again if I wanted to repeat ;) Mostly light user, but ...

Ah yes. To be clear I am using apalike.bst In the future I will want to use a modified version of that which, when the url field is present, turns the title into a hyperlink and a footnote that contains the url for the benefit of printed versions. But other than that, apalike.bst typographically doe...
