TeX Gyre Heros

The package contains the most recent version of the TeX Gyre Heros family of fonts in the PostScript Type 1 and OpenType formats. TeX Gyre Heros is based on the URW Nimbus Sans 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.

TeX Gyre Heros can be used as a replacement for a popular font Helvetica, also known as Swiss (prepared by Max Miedinger with Eduard Hoffmann, 1957, at the Haas Type Foundry).

(Please note that with the release of this family the QuasiSwiss fonts became obsolete.)

Basic stuff: Type1s + OTFs + TFMs + LaTeX support + info (ver. 2.004; a TDS zip archive, primarily for TeXies)

8 OTF files: regular, italic, bold and bold italic and their condensed counterparts (ver. 2.004; a “flat” zip archive, primarily for non-TeXies)
