############         A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PACKAGE        ############
###########################################################################

The current package contains the most recent version of the TeX Gyre
Adventor family of fonts in the PostScript Type 1 and OpenType formats.
TeX Gyre Adventor is based on the URW Gothic L kindly released
by URW++ Design and Development Inc. under GFL (independently of the GPL
release accompanying Ghostscript). The Vietnamese glyphs were added
by Han The Thanh. The Greek (basic) alphabet programmed for the TeX Gyre
Adventor was inspired by the Kerkis package
(http://iris.math.aegean.gr/kerkis/).

TeX Gyre Adventor can be used as a replacement for ITC Avant Garde
Gothic (designed by Herb Lubalin and Tom Carnase, 1970)

Note that the widths of nearly all glyphs made consistent with the Adobe
metric data (for the glyphs from the Adobe Standard Encoding):
  ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/type/win/all/afmfiles/base35/agd_____.afm
  ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/type/win/all/afmfiles/base35/agdo____.afm
  ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/type/win/all/afmfiles/base35/agw_____.afm
  ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/type/win/all/afmfiles/base35/agwo____.afm

An exception is (in qagr and qagri) the glyph `grave':
378 (Adobe); 375 (TeX Gyre, as `acute').

                           *   *   *

The TeX Gyre project, following the Latin Modern 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. We have frequently used the information
presented by Michael Everson at the ``The Alphabets of Europe''
( http://www.evertype.com/alphabets/ ) web site. If you know about European
languages that are not covered completely or if some glyphs have apparently
wrong shapes -- please let us know. Note, however, that Greek glyphs
bear provisional character.

The TeX Gyre Project was launched and is supported by TeX USERS GROUPS
(CS TUG, DANTE eV, GUST, NTG, TUG India, TUG). Hearty thanks to the
representatives of these groups and also to all people who helped with
comments, ideas, remarks, bug reports, objections, hints, consolations, etc.

                           *   *   *

The TeX Gyre Adventor family consists of 4 text fonts: regular,
italic, bold and bold italic (qagr, qagri, qagb, qagbi).


                           *   *   *

The package consists of the files in the directories conforming
to the TeX Directory Structure (v. 1.1). The directories contain:

doc/fonts/tex-gyre             this file, manifest, licence, test files,
                               and, moreover, selected files used as input
                               for generating OTFs (meant as a technical
                               documentation of the OTFs)
tex/latex/tex-gyre             support for LaTeX (*.fd and *.sty files,
                               prepared by Marcin Woli\'nski)
fonts/enc/dvips/tex-gyre       support for dvips (*.enc files);
                               NOTE: all fonts of the TeX Gyre family
                                 share the same *.enc files with
                                 a few exceptions: CS, QX, and RM encodings
                                 for TeX Gyre Cursor (monospace) differ
                                 from the standard ones (because of the
                                 compatibility with Computer Modern
                                 typewriter fonts requested by users),
                                 and, moreover, CS, L7x, QX and RM encodings
                                 for TeX Gyre Chorus exploit exceptionally
                                 the `lslash_lslash' ligature
fonts/map/dvips/tex-gyre       support for dvips (*.map files)
fonts/opentype/public/tex-gyre fonts in the OpenType format (*.otf files)
fonts/type1/public/tex-gyre    PostScript (Type 1) font files and printer
                               font metric files (*.pfb and *.pfm,
                               respectively);
fonts/tfm/public/tex-gyre      TeX font metric files (*.tfm) for:
                               -- CS (CSTUG) encoding (cs-*.tfm),
                               -- EC (Cork) encoding (ec-*.tfm),
                               -- L7x (Lithuanian) encoding (l7x-*.tfm),
                               -- QX (GUST) encoding (qx-*.tfm),
                               -- RM (Regular Math or OT1) encoding (rm-*.tfm),
                               -- Y&Y's TeX'n'ANSI aka LY1 encoding
                                  (texnansi-*.tfm),

                                  (ts1-*.tfm).

                               have their cap-small-caps counterparts
                               (*-sc.tfm).

In ConTeXt, support for TeX Gyre Collection can be found in the typescript
definition files:

  ... /tex/context/base/type-enc.tex
  ... /tex/context/base/type-syn.tex
  ... /tex/context/base/type-exa.tex

  ... /texmf/fonts/map/pdftex/context
  ... /texmf/fonts/enc/pdftex/context

                           *   *   *

All four font files, qagb, qagbi, qagr, qagri, share the same repertoire
of characters. The number of glyphs in the PFB/OTF files (.notdef ignored) equals
1616/1548; see qag-info.pdf file in the relevant doc directory for details
