scalable PostScript and OpenType fonts based on URW Fonts
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.
The TeX-GYRE bundle consists of seven font families:
The TeX Gyre Adventor family of fonts is based on the URW Gothic L family (designed by Herb Lubalin and Tom Carnase).
The TeX Gyre Bonum family of fonts is based on the URW Bookman L family (designed by Alexander Phemister).
The TeX Gyre Chorus font is based on URW Chancery L Medium Italic (designed by Hermann Zapf (ITC Zapf Chancery(R), 1979)).
The TeX Gyre Cursor family is based on the URW Nimbus Mono L family (designed by Howard G. (Bud) Kettler in 1955 for the IBM corporation).
The TeX Gyre Heros family of fonts is based on the URW Nimbus Sans L (prepared by Max Miedinger, with Eduard Hoffmann).
The TeX Gyre Pagella family of fonts is based on the URW Palladio L family (designed by Hermann Zapf).
The TeX Gyre Schola family of fonts is based on the URW Century Schoolbook L family (designed by Morris Fuller Benton).
The TeX Gyre Termes is based on the URW Nimbus Roman No9 L family (designed by Stanley Morison together with Starling Burgess and Victor Lardent).
The constituent 4 standard faces of each family have been greatly extended, and contain nearly 1200 glyphs each. Each family is available in Adobe Type 1 and Open Type formats, and LaTeX support (for use with a variety of encodings) is provided. Vietnamese characters were added by Han The Thanh.
