Users can select new font encodings using the
fontenc package. The
fontenc package has options for encodings; the last option becomes
the default encoding. For example, to use the
University Cyrillic encoding) and
T1 encodings, with
T1 as the
default, an author types:
This package loads the encoding definition files
<ENC>enc.def files) for each font encoding <ENC> given as an
option but not already declared; it also sets
\encodingdefault to be
the last encoding in the option list.
LaTeX currently predefines the
T1 text encodings, and
provides the files
T1enc.def. Other encoding
set-ups might be added to the distribution at a later stage.
Thus the example above loads the file
OT2enc.def and sets
Note: If you wish to use T1-encoded fonts other than the `cmr' family then you may need to load the package (e.g. times) that selects the fonts before loading fontenc (this prevents the system from attempting to load any T1-encoded fonts from the `cmr' family).
