Summary description: A late medieval OpenType cursive font

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Aboensis is a 15th century paleographical OpenType/PS cursive font.
It is based on Codex Aboensis that is a law book written in Sweden
in the 1430s. It is intended for emulating late medieval manuscripts.

In addition to normal letters the font has a large number of
abbreviation sigla and two sets of initials: Lombardic and cursive.
There is also support for writing two-colored initials and capitals.

The package has a style file that helps in using the advanced
features of the font.
