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

The following code has been tested with ConTeXt 2013.12.20 / LuaTeX 0.77.0 on Windows 7. It takes advantage of recent fixes which simplified the font setup significantly.

Example file

\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
% an extra \sup macro is defined for our convenience

% global protrusion and expansion settings - it is not inherited in custom paragraph definitions
\setupalign[hz, hanging]
% default 'verystrict' tolerance settings produces unwrapped greek text

\defineparagraphs[TwoColumns][n=2, align={hz, hanging}]
\setupparagraphs[TwoColumns][1][width=52pt, style=italic, align=left]


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.

Ὅτι μὲν ὑμεῖς, ὦ ἄνδρες Ἀθηναῖοι, 
πεπόνθατε ὑπὸ τῶν ἐμῶν κατηγόρων, 
οὐκ οἶδα· ἐγὼ δ' οὖν καὶ αὐτὸς ὑπ' 
αὐτῶν ὀλίγου ἐμαυτοῦ ἐπελαθόμην, 
οὕτω πιθανῶς ἔλεγον.
