 > The package contains the Antykwa P\'o{\l}tawskiego family of fonts in the
 > PostScript Type 1 and OpenType formats.
 > The original font was designed in the twenties of the XX century by
 > the Polish typographer Adam P\'o{\l}tawski (1881-1952).
 > Following the route set out by the Latin Modern and TeX Gyre projects
 > (, the Antykwa Poltawskiego
 > digitisation project aims at providing a rich collection of
 > diacritical characters in the attempt to cover as many Latin-based
 > scripts as possible. To our knowledge, the repertoire of characters
 > covers all European languages as well as some other Latin-based
 > alphabets such as Vietnamese and Navajo; at the request of users,
 > recent extensions (following the enhancement of the Latin Modern
 > collection) provide glyphs sufficient for typesetting of romanized
 > transliterations of Arabic and Sanskrit scripts.
 > The Antykwa Poltawskiego family consists of 4 weights (light,
 > normal, medium, bold), each having upright and italic forms and one
 > of 5 design sizes: 6, 8, 10, 12 and 17pt (in the OTF lingo: extended,
 > semiextended, normal, semicondensed, and condensed, respectively).
 > Altogether, the collection comprises 40 font files,
 > containing the same repertoire of 1126 characters.
 > The preliminary version of Antykwa Poltawskiego (antp package)
 > released in 2000 becomes obsolete.
