Summary description: Gentium font family in TrueType and Type 1 formats, with ConTeXt and LateX support
License type: ofl

Announcement text: 

Gentium is a typeface family designed to enable the diverse ethnic
groups around the world who use the Latin, Cyrillic and Greek scripts to
produce readable, high-quality publications. It supports a wide range of
Latin- and Cyrillic-based alphabet.

This TeX package, gentium-tug, consists of:

1. The original (unaltered) GentiumPlus, GentiumBook, and other
Gentium-family fonts in TrueType format, as developed by SIL and
released under the OFL (see OFL.txt and OFL-FAQ.txt).

2. Converted fonts in PostScript Type 1 format, released under the same
terms.  These incorporate the name "Gentium" by permission of SIL given
to the TeX Users Group.  These Type 1 fonts are the principal difference
between this package and the previous gentium package on CTAN.

3. ConTeXt, LaTeX and other supporting files under the Expat license,

4. Documentation: the TeX-specific documentation is in
gentium.{tex,pdf}.  We have also included the original documentation,
fontlogs, and other files from the SIL distribution, entirely unaltered.
