Date Thu, 27 Mar 1997 11:02:17 GMT

Perhaps some of you are beside Webserver hacking also interested in Webdesign.
Below is a copy of the announcement of my latest result of hacking offline
HTML generation tools.

Watch http://www.engelschall.com/sw/gfont/example/ for nice examples...

  gFONT -- Create GIF image rendered with TeX-available Font

  <URL:http://www.engelschall.com/sw/gfont/>

  Version 1.0b2 (27-03-1997)

  The gFONT program creates a GIF image for a given ASCII string by the use of
  an arbitrary TeX-available font (Postscript or METAFONT). The used font is
  converted from TeX's PK format to gFONT's own GdF format (Gd Font) and
  rendered into the resulting GIF image by the use of its own enhanced Gd
  library.  The result is intended to be included into HTML pages with an IMG
  tag.
