I am in need of italic versions of Thorn and Eth. I can access these Old English characters using the following:

\font\specialfont=ecrm1000 scaled 1100 
\def\thorn{{\specialfont\char254}} 
\def\Thorn{{\specialfont\char222}} 
\def\eth{{\specialfont\char238}} 
\def\Eth{{\specialfont\char208}}

Is there a method for getting italics versions?

\font\specialfont=ecrm1000 scaled 1100 
\def\thorn{{\specialfont\char254}} 
\def\Thorn{{\specialfont\char222}} 
\def\eth{{\specialfont\char238}} 
\def\Eth{{\specialfont\char208}}

\font\specialfonti=ecit1000 scaled 1100 
\def\thorni{{\specialfonti\char254}} 
\def\Thorni{{\specialfonti\char222}} 
\def\ethi{{\specialfonti\char238}} 
\def\Ethi{{\specialfonti\char208}}

\thorn \thorni

\bye

  • In words: "If you get some upright characters from font ecrm1000, you may get the corresponding italic characters from ecit1000."

    @Mico and get them more easily by using latex and \textit{\th} :-) Dec 7, 2014 at 21:24

  • @DavidCarlisle: Isn't \th theta, not thorn? Dec 22, 2014 at 16:21
  • @BrettReynolds no it is defined as \DeclareUnicodeCharacter{00FE}{\th} and U+00FE is LATIN SMALL LETTER THORN Dec 22, 2014 at 16:27
