XeTex - Times New Roman font for Romanian characters ș, ț, Ș and Ț

December 13Hits:1
Advertisement

I have downloaded the Times New Roman font and put it into .local/fonts where it should be (my OS is Fedora 17 and I use TexLive 2012). It is recognized by LibreOffice and LyX. LibreOffice displays correctly the Romanian characters ș,ț,Ș,Ț and even converting the LibreOffice document to pdf keeps them visible and rightly displayed, but when I write a document in LyX using Times New Roman and XeTex compilation, even though I see them in the input document, the pdf output displays four squares instead of the desired characters. I expected that, since the command fc-list :lang=ro | Times does not display anything, so it's an incompatibility between Times New Roman and Romanian language (which I can't explain since LibreOffice correctly displays the four characters). How can I solve this? Do I need a special Times New Roman font? I haven't found one, it's almost 2013 and there's no Times New Roman for the Romanian language used in LyX with XeTex :)

Answers

Solved by actually using a different type of Times New Roman font (with Romanian glyphs). Otherwhise Joseph Wright's suggestion of using the TeX Gyre Termes is a nice hack. Thank you for your help.
