Summary description: Enhanced support for GUST's Latin Modern fonts.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
This package is experimental.

The package supports a number of features of the Latin Modern fonts 
which are not easily accessible via the default (La)TeX support provided 
in the official distribution. In particular, the package supports the use 
of the various styles of digits available, small-caps and upright italic 
shapes, and alternative weights and widths. It also supports variable 
width typewriter and the "quotation" font. 

By default, the package uses proportional oldstyle digits and variable 
width typewriter but this can be changed by passing appropriate options 
to the package. The package also supports using e.g. different styles of 
digits within a document so it is possible to use proportional oldstyle 
digits by default, say, but tabular lining digits within a particular 
table. See the README for details.

The package requires the official Latin Modern distribution, including 
ts (La)TeX support. The package relies on the availability of both the 
fonts themselves and the official font support files. 

Only the T1 and TS1 encodings are supported for text fonts. The set up 
of fonts for mathematics is identical to that provided by Latin Modern.
