Use any font for LaTeX..

LaTeX is a fantastic publishing system. I use it as often as I can. However, when you use it for a long time, the few beautiful fonts available with a standard installation are getting boring. I tried in the past hacks like converting TTF fonts into a LaTeX understandable format, but I was not really successful at that.

Well, today I discovered XeTeX: A LaTeX compiler that generates pdf documents with support to any font installed on windows machine :-)! I checked that and it was as simple as promissed:

  • download and install MikTeX 2.7
  • download the example I created
  • run run.cmd
  • enjoy 🙂
