Type1 version of 3270 font with APL support
Converted from OTF version,
suitable for pdfTeX and DVIPDFMx.
To install, untar the content of 3270.tgz
to somewhere in the
This is for plainTeX that you are supposed to
use the statement
load the font.
apldef.tex file is similar to
the corresponding macro
and can be use to type APL glyphs.
A few notes:
- The font produced by
has the issue that baseline is higher that it supposed to be, I don't
use any font editing programs so I created a virtual font to fix this
- Some glyphs are composed by overstrike rather than importing
the corresponding glyphs. One reason to do so is reduce the amount
of glyphs imported and reserve the space for possible future
- The other reason is that I feel certain glyphs are not consistent
with each other. One change I did made is shifting "dieresis"
a bit to right in the virtual font so it looks like centered
when overstrike to form "switch", "power", "over".
- It might create trouble that copy from the PDF would
not be fully functional as a TeX macro is used to perform
overstrike. In the future this could be solved by provide
proper encoding with virtual font.
