STM publishing: tools, technologies and change A WordPress site for STM Publishing

About me

About this blog

I enjoy technical writing and, for me, this blog is a “creative outlet” where I can share/document some of my interests in low-level technical aspects of tools and technologies related to the authorship of technical content: graphics, PDF, typesetting, text processing, OpenType/fonts, Unicode and digital/electronic publishing. As you might infer from this blog I'm interested in Arabic text processing/typesetting, XeTeX and LuaTeX too! I can see so many applications of these incredible TeX engines, particularly LuaTeX through extensions via DLLs. XeTeX's built-in font handling and OpenType shaping engine(s) are also amazingly useful.

I've owned the domain readytext.co.uk for many years and purely on a whim, on 1 January 2011, I finally decided to make use of it. This site was launched, if you can call it that, on 1 January 2011, at around 3pm UK time. Stay tuned and, most definitely, don't drop out...
