Representation of fonts
LaTeXML::Common::Font represent fonts in LaTeXML. It extends LaTeXML::Common::Object.
This module defines Font objects. I’m not completely happy with the arrangement, or maybe just the use of it, so I’m not going to document extensively at this point.
The attributes are
family : serif, sansserif, typewriter, caligraphic, fraktur, script series : medium, bold shape : upright, italic, slanted, smallcaps size : TINY, Tiny, tiny, SMALL, Small, small, normal, Normal, large, Large, LARGE, huge, Huge, HUGE, gigantic, Gigantic, GIGANTIC color : any named color, default is black
They are usually merged against the current font, attempting to mimic the, sometimes counter-intuitive, way that TeX does it, particularly for math
In math mode, LaTeXML::Common::Font supports computing a font reflecting how the specific $string would be printed when $font is active; This (attempts to) handle the curious ways that lower case greek often doesn’t get a different font. In particular, it recognizes the following classes of strings: single latin letter, single uppercase greek character, single lowercase greek character, digits, and others.
