## Comparing different implementations of the Computer Modern Roman fonts

### The original vs. the European variations

#### Ligatures and special characters of the orignal Computer Modern Roman

The Latin Modern Fonts were designed
to extend the glyph coverage of the Computer Modern family. They are
provided as Type 1 as well as OpenType fonts.

Yet another implementation of The Computer Modern fonts with
enhanced glyph coverage is the New
Computer Modern fonts. These fonts tend to keep the visual
design of the original Computer Modern Fonts.
The New Computer
Modern fonts come in OpenType only.

### Comparison of the varous implementations

## Stylistic variations of the Computer Modern fonts

As the original design of the Computer Modern fonts were made in
MetaFont with a high degree of parameterization, several
modifications of the fonts are available.

Furthermore there are several re-implementations of the original
fonts as demonstrated above.

Another version of the Computer Modern fonts is
the MLModern fonts. They are designed to be a
blacker drop-in replacement for the Latin Modern fonts.

### Computer Modern Dunhill Roman

The Computer Modern Dunhill Roman is a somewhat true stylistic
alternative of the original fonts. It has en extended ascend (stem
height) and it is useable as an artistic alternative to the
original fonts.

### Computer Concrete

The Computer Concrete fonts are designed by Donald Knuth (the
designer of the origina Computer Modern fonts) to match the Euler
math font.

### Computer Modern Fibonacci

This font is made with the parameters of the original fonts taken
from the Fibonacci sequence.

### Computer Modern Outline

A outlined version of the original fonts.
