Hello TeX users,

A set of 19 macros is available as a package on
http://texcatalogue.sarovar.org/entries/font-change.html with concise
documentation (PDF).

These macros allow the user to change the font (text + math) used in any TeX
document with one statement, e.g. \input font_charter changes the font to
Charter. All original typeface-changing control statements like \rm, \bf,
\it, \sl,  and \tt are preserved and other choices like \itbf for "italic
bold" and \slbf for "slanted bold" are available too. Each macro offers 5,
6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20pt sizes for all included typefaces.
It is not for LaTeX; it works with plain TeX and other macros like AmSTeX
and eplain for plain TeX. I hope you will find it useful.

Your comments and suggestions are welcomed.
