Description Nicolas Mailhot 2008-07-21 13:43:58 UTC
Spec URL:
As it is known, the Greek alphabet was used in majuscule form for over a
millenium before the miniscule letters gradually replaced it until they became
the official script in the 9th century A.D. Thereafter, majuscule letters were
confined to sparce use as initials or elaborate titles until the Italian

The new art of Typography, as well as the need of the humanists to mimic the
ancient Greco-Roman period brought back the extensive use of the majuscule
letterforms in both Latin and Greek typography. Greek books of the time were
printed using the contemporary Byzantine hand with which they combined capital
letters modeled on the Roman antiquity, i.e. with thick and thin strokes and
serifs. At the same time the byzantine majuscule tradition, principally used on
theological editions, remained alive until the early 19th century.

It has been designed by George D. Matthiopoulos.

Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-07-21 19:52:51 UTC
I guess I pay for the fact rpmlint is broken in rawhide by the new rpm, so I
can't run it. However I do know what that warning means (font spec filename ≠
rpm filename) so I'll fix it before import

Thanks you for the lighting-fast review!
