Publications by topic: Fonts in text and math
From the TUG Online Conference 2021
Reviving Type 3 fonts for modern LuaLaTeX documents

- Keywords: Type3 fonts
For a long time, Type 3 fonts in LaTeX-generated PDF files were known for (undesirable) bitmap fonts, but that’s only a small aspect of what this font format can do. With OpenType color fonts, the idea behind Type 3 fonts has seen a revival, and LuaTeX recently added support for adding such fonts for non-bitmap use cases too.
In this talk I want to look at how this format can be used to create smaller and simpler PDF files involving color fonts and user-generated glyphs and consider advantages and disadvantages in contrast to traditional alternatives like virtual fonts or macrobased solutions.
Video to be added when available.

A case study of using LuaLaTeX and the new Harfbuzz library.
From the TUG Conference 2018 (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
While the fundamentals of both the
unicode-mathpackages have stayed the same, these packages have undergone a significant amount of development behind the scenes. While many users won’t be interested in the technical details, there are a number of feature additions that deserve broader discussion.
In this presentation I will cover the basics of these packages and best practices for using them, specifically including more recent features that users may not yet have seen. I will also try to give an overview of some technical details to focus on
expl3package development and lessons learned.
