CTAN Edition

cmsd A package including additional fd files.
Its purpose is to provide an alternative interface to the CM Sans Serif boldface fonts. The EC (T1, Cork) encoded versions of the `CM Sans Serif boldface extended' fonts differ considerably from the traditionally (OT1) encoded ones: At large sizes, > 10pt, they have thinner strokes and are much wider. At 25pt they are hardly to be recognized as being `boldface'. This package attempts to make these T1 fonts look like the traditional ones did. You do not need any new fonts; the package just changes the way LaTeX makes use of the current ones.
