24 These changes make the fonts compatible with the US-ASCII character
25 set. (UTF-8 is not compatible with ASCII in its usage of the
26 backquote and some other characters.) With these fonts, pre-2000
27 documents (including ASCII art and GNU manuals) will render
28 correctly.

30 Optionally, this package will edit your configuration to make the
31 default font "fixed" refer to the traditional font.

33 (This package does not actually contain the bulk of the font data;
34 rather, it automatically generates the required modified fonts for
12fa1ef8 35 each relevant font you have installed.)
