    The auncial bundle provides packages and fonts for a script based 
on the Artificial Uncial manuscript book-hand used between the 6th & 10th 
century AD. The script consists of minuscules and digits, with some 
appropriate period punctuation marks. Both normal and bold versions are 
provided. This is one of a series for bookhand fonts.

    The font follows the B1 encoding developed for bookhands. Access to
this is essential. The encoding mainly follows the regular T1 encoding.

   If there are any questions please ask them on the comp.text.tex newsgroup.

Changes in version 2.0 (2005/11/27)
o Font supplied as Postscript Type1 instead of MetaFont
o Only B1 encoding supported
o Major code rewrite

Changes in version 1.0 (1999/05/22)
o First public release

    e.g., .../texmf-local/tex/latex/auncial
o Move *.afm, *.pfb and *.tfm files to where LaTeX looks for font information
    e.g., .../texmf-var/fonts/afm/public/bookhands/*.afm

   If you want the MetaFont version as well:
   o Move the *.mf files to, e.g., .../texmf-var/fonts/source/public/auncial

o Refresh the database
 (for more information on the above see the FAQ).

o run: (pdf)latex tryauncial for a test of the font
