   13 They are all free software, but not officially part of Texinfo, and the
   14 Texinfo maintainers don't support them (and generally have no knowledge
   15 about them, just passing them on).

   17 The texifont/ subdirectory was an attempt at implementing a generalized
   18 font system, but it remains incomplete.  See the README there.

   20 In contrast, the two txipsfonts-* files are attempts by Torsten Bronger
   21 and Stephen Gildea, respectively, to use base PostScript fonts instead
   22 of Computer Modern, in the simplest way.  (I could not find the right
   23 version of the original texinfo.tex on which Torsten's file was based.)
   24 Adapting one of these to actually be installable would doubtless be much
   25 simpler (which is not to say simple) than finalizing texifont/, though
   26 of course much less featureful.
   27 
   28 The perldoc-all subdirectory is about making Texinfo out of the standard
   29 Perl *.pod files.  The results are at
