All three font types are vector font formats, however OpenType/TrueType are rich formats that can support many more features and languages than Type 1 fonts can do, moreover, this change concerns XeTeX which can utilize these features, not any other part of TeX Live. This change was in response to issues like the following question: \setmainfont{Linux ...

The character maps of T2A and T1 are identical in the first 128 positions. So english texts should work fine with T2A. But if you want to insert umlauts and other accented chars from the upper part of the char table of T1-encoding you should consider to switch to T1 for such texts instead of relying on LaTeX to fall back to the correct definitions.

It works for me; however, an adjustment can be made keeping into account that yswab is available in Type1 format, so it can be arbitrarily scaled: \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage{yfonts} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \DeclareFontShape{LY}{yswab}{m}{n}{<->yswab}{} \begin{document} \swabfamily Text \Large Text \fontsize{36}{44}\selectfont Text ...

Really this should be done with a simple shell script or other Unix tool that generates a simple wrapper document, which loads your text. But here's a more TeX-centric solution. It has the benefit that you can use just one LaTeX document, which is not generated or modified programmatically. A little-used feature of (La)TeX is that its argument can be a ...

You can load tgschola at a slightly reduced size: \documentclass[fontsize=11.2pt,oneside,DIV=12,a4paper]{scrreprt} \usepackage{fouriernc} \usepackage[scale=0.92]{tgschola} \usepackage{xcolor} \begin{document} % Draw a rule to mark the x-height \makebox[0pt][l]{\color{green!70}\vrule height\dimexpr 1ex+0.2pt depth -1ex width \textwidth}% This is $n_i$ a ...

Problem 1 Use mathpazo rather than palatino, with the sc option: \documentclass[12pt]{book} \usepackage[sc]{mathpazo} \def\switchcaps{\fontsize{8pt}{12pt}\selectfont} \begin{document} \fontsize{10pt}{12pt}\selectfont \textsc{a}{\switchcaps{A}}% \textsc{b}{\switchcaps{B}}% \textsc{c}{\switchcaps{C}}% \textsc{n}{\switchcaps{N}}% \textsc{u}{\switchcaps{U}} ...

Any TrueType or OpenType font can be used with XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX just by installing it as a regular system font. Just download the OpenType or TrueType version of the font(s) and install them as a regular system font (i.e., in /Library/Fonts) and they will work with XeTeX or LuaTeX using the fontspec package.

Use the T1 encoding: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{lmodern} \begin{document} <<blah blah>> \end{document} If your document is UTF-8 encoded, then also direct input works: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{lmodern} \begin{document} «blah blah» ...

Hmmm, have a look at the output: Code: %!TEX program = xelatex %!TEX encoding = UTF-8 \documentclass[UTF8, nofonts]{ctexart} \setCJKmainfont[RawFeature={vertical:+vert:+vhal},BoldFont=Adobe Heiti Std,ItalicFont=Adobe Kaiti Std] {Adobe Song Std} \setCJKsansfont[RawFeature={vertical:+vert:+vhal}]{Adobe Heiti Std} ...

This works, provided the file is saved as UTF-8 \documentclass{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[icelandic]{babel} \begin{document} \begin{verbatim} I want these letters in amsart: þÞæÆöÖáÁíÍéÉúÚóÓýÝðÐ (I know I can get æ with \ae\ but that's useless without the others). \end{verbatim} I want these letters in ...
