I would like to know if the British Baskerville typeface is available in TeXLive2010 (i.e. freely). If yes, which package to load?

Thanks. I have compiled the code with pdfTeX and it works. Anything special about the class scrartcl? I read it is a KOMA–Script class article. I can run the above code with the default article class also. 1vote up. – yCalleecharan Jul 22 '11 at 6:20
@yCalleecharan: The KOMA classes have a lot extensions which the default standard classes lack – Herbert Apr 12 '13 at 6:03
