                            Lettrine bundle

This bundle contains a package that I maintain to typeset dropped
capitals in a LaTeX document.

It is subject to the LaTeX Project Public License.
for the details of that license.

Installation: this bundle is included in most TeX distributions, but
if you need to install it by yourself
1. run lualatex on lettrine.dtx to get the documentation (lettrine.pdf),
2. run luatex on lettrine.ins to strip the comments and create
   lettrine.sty and lettrine.cfg
3. run luatex on contrib.dtx to produce the *.cfl files.
Files lettrine.sty, lettrine.cfg, lettrine-*.sty and *.cfl go to to
a directory searched by TeX, typically $TEXMF/tex/latex/lettrine.
Files README, demo*, *.pdf go to a doc directory, typically
Files *.dtx, *.ins go to a source directory, typically

If you wish, you can customize lettrine.cfg according to your needs.

Have a look at one of the PDF files, demo.pdf (in French), or
demo-de.pdf (in German) in the doc directory, to see how
different layouts for dropped capitals can be achieved.
You can also play with the source files demo.tex or demo-de.tex.
Have a look at lettrine.pdf in the doc directory, if you are interested
in the complete documentation and code.
