ETAP: Experimental Typesetting Algorithms Platform

From LRDE

Abstract

We present the early development stages of ETAP, a platform for experimenting with typesetting algorithms. The purpose of this platform is twofold: while its primary objective is to provide building blocks for quickly and easily designing and testing new algorithms (or variations on existing ones), it can also be used as an interactivereal time demonstrator for many features of digital typography, such as kerning, hyphenation, or ligaturing.
