Jump to: navigation, search

This page shows you how to use most of the typographical features of the Palatino Linotype font shipped with MS Windows.

The following code requires LuaTeX 0.77.0+ which simplifies the font setup significantly.

Example file

% specifying ancient greek pattern ensures proper hyphenation of greek text
\setuplanguage[en][patterns={en,agr}]
\mainlanguage[en]

\definefontfamily[palatino][rm][Palatino Linotype][features={default, quality}]
% by default all \it \bf \bi \smallcaps \oldstyle styles are ready to use as well as ligatures
% but superscript requires extra settings
\definefontfeature[f:superscript][sups=yes]
% an extra \sup macro is defined for our convenience
\define[1]\sup{\feature[+][f:superscript]#1}

\setupbodyfont[palatino]
% global protrusion and expansion settings - it is not inherited in custom paragraph definitions
\setupalign[hz, hanging]

\defineparagraphs[TwoColumns][n=2, align={hz, hanging}]
\setupparagraphs[TwoColumns][1][width=100pt, style=italic, align=left]

\startbuffer[Plato]
How you, O Athenians, have been affected by my accusers, I cannot tell;
but I know that they almost made me forget who I was--so persuasively
did they speak; and yet they have hardly uttered a word of truth.
