Description: scalable PostScript fonts for european character sets
The Latin Modern fonts, also known as "lm fonts", are a set of
scalable fonts in PostScript Type 1 format. They are based on the
PostScript Type 1 version of the Computer Modern fonts and contain
many additional characters (mostly accented ones).
The Latin Modern fonts were generated using MetaType1, a program
based on MetaPost for generating PostScript Type 1 fonts
(ftp://bop.eps.gda.pl/pub/metatype1/). Their size is reasonable and
they are usually considered to be of good quality (compared to
cm-super, for instance; however, cm-super contains font families
that have no equivalent in this package; additionally, there are
character sets that are supported by cm-super and not by the Latin
The fonts are setup for use with the TeX typesetting system. They
are also registered with defoma, which makes them available to other
applications such as Ghostscript and Fontconfig. Finally, they are
made available to the X Window System directly, which makes it
possible to use them in any X application (however, XFree86's native
rendering of PostScript Type 1 fonts is not fantastic at the moment,
so the result in this last case is not so pleasant as with font
rendering engines that perform anti-aliasing, such as FreeType).
Note: the latest upstream versions are not limited to european character
sets anymore, since they include vietnamese characters.
