Hello. I'm writing some notes on ancient Egyptian and Babylonian
numeral systems, and I would like to be able to typeset them. I was
pointed to this Web page
and it looks like "Aegyptus" and "Akkadian" have the symbols I need
(plus too much more), but I'm at a loss of how to proceed in using them.
Another lead is this article,
in which the last paragraph states that there are fonts I'm looking
to use in CTAN. Popping over there, I found
I'm using Tex Live 2007 under Mac OS 10.4.11 on my 12" PowerBook G4.
I have never installed new fonts, so the simplest directions would be
very much appreciated. I checked the archives and found this thread
but, to be honest, I'm more than a little dumbfounded still.
