This module installs the styles under BaKoMa TeX 8.0 and later.
To install the fonts just open the RUSSIAN.BKZ unit.

After installing this module and restarting the BaKoMa Text Editor, you should find new items in the 'TeX Formats' menu:

  • Plain + Rus/T2A
  • AmsTeX + Rus/T2A
  • LaTeX 2.09 + NFSS + Rus/T2A

CMCyr Fonts

The CMCYR fonts are an add-on to Knuth's CM fonts designed to cover the modern Russian letters. These fonts were designed by N.Glonty and A.Samarin at IHEP, Protvino.

This module includes virtual fonts that combine these fonts with CM fonts to produce font families for Russian users:

  • T2A - requires installing of T1 fonts from kernel;
  • LCY - OT1 + cp866 (principal emulation of LH* fonts);
  • CZ - OT1 + T2A (used for russification of Plain TeX, Ams TeX, and LaTeX 2.09)
Note: In addition to installing these fonts, this module creates substitution records for LH* and LA* fonts. For this reason, standard LaTeX 2e russification based on T2A encoding and LA* fonts will work with these fonts without any modifications.
