%D This module implements some typographics tricks that can
%D be fun when designing document layouts. The examples use
%D macros that are typical to \CONTEXT, but non \CONTEXT\
%D users can use the drop caps and first line treatment
%D macros without problems. This module will be extended
%D when the need for more of such tricks arises.

%D   {2.2\baselineskip} {2pt} {\baselineskip} {2}
%D   Let's start
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \getbuffer with dropped caps, those blown up first
%D characters of a paragraph. It's hard to implement a general
%D mechanism that suits all situations, but dropped caps are so
%D seldomly used that we can permit ourselves a rather user
%D unfriendly implementation.
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D As we will see, there are 7 different settings involved. The
%D first argument takes a command that is used to do whatever
%D fancy things we want to do, but normally this one will be
%D empty. The second argument takes the font. Because we're
%D dealing with something very typographic, there is no real
%D reason to adopt complicated font switching schemes, a mere
%D name will do. Font encodings can bring no harm, because the
%D alphanumeric characters are nearly always located at their
%D natural position in the encoding vector.
%D
%D \startbuffer
%D \DroppedCaps
%D   {\color[red]} {cmbx12}
%D   {\baselineskip} {0pt} {0pt} {1}
%D   This simple
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \getbuffer case shows us what happens when we apply minimal
%D values. Here we used:
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D \startbuffer
%D \DroppedCaps
%D   {\color[red]} {cmbx12}
%D   {2\baselineskip} {0pt} {\baselineskip} {2}
%D   Is this ugly
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \getbuffer example the third argument tells
%D this macro that we want a dropped capital scaled to the
%D baseline distance. The two zero point arguments are the
%D horizontal and vertical offsets and the last arguments
%D determines the hanging indentation. In this paragraph we
%D set the height to two times the baselinedistance and use
%D two hanging lines:
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D Here, the first character is moved down one baseline. Here
%D we also see why the horizontal offset is important. The
%D first example (showing the~L) sets this to a few points and
%D also used a slightly larger height.
%D
%D Of course common users (typist) are not supposed to see this
%D kind of fuzzy definitions, but fortunately \TEX\ permits us
%D to hide them in macros. Using a macro also enables us to
%D garantee consistency throughout the document:
%D
%D \startbuffer
%D \def\MyDroppedCaps%
%D   {\DroppedCaps
%D      {\color[green]} {cmbx12}
%D      {5\baselineskip} {3pt} {3\baselineskip} {4}}
%D
%D \MyDroppedCaps The implementation
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D \getbuffer of the general macro is rather simple and only
%D depends on the arguments given and the dimensions of the
%D strut box. We explicitly load the font, which is no problem
%D because \TEX\ does not load a font twice. We could have
%D combined some arguments, like the height, vertical offset
%D and the number of lines, but the current implementation
%D proved to be the most flexible. One should be aware of the
%D fact that the offsets depend on the design of the glyphs
%D used.

%D \macros
%D   {TreatFirstLine}
%D
%D \startbuffer
%D \TreatFirstLine {\sc} {} {} {}
%D Instead of limiting its action to one token, the next macro
%D treats the whole first line. This paragraph was typeset by
%D saying:
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \getbuffer
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D \startbuffer
%D \TreatFirstLine {\startcolor[red]\bf} {\stopcolor} {} {}
%D The combined color and font effect is also possible,
%D although one must be careful in using macros that accumulate
%D grouping, but the commands used here are pretty save in that
%D respect.
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \getbuffer
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D Before we explain the third and fourth argument, we show the
%D implementation. Those who know a bit about the way \TEX\
%D treats tokens, will probably see in one glance that this
%D alternative works all right for most text||only situations
%D in which there is enough text available for the first line,
%D but that more complicated things will blow. One has to live
%D with that. A workaround is rather trivial but obscures the
%D principles used.

%D The third and fourth argument can be used to gain special
%D effects on the individual words. Of course one needs ...
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \getbuffer
%D to know a bit more about the macro package used to get real
%D nice effects, but this example probably demonstrates the
%D principles well.
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D Like in dropped caps case, one can hide such treatments in a
%D macro, like:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \def\MyTreatFirstLine%
%D   {\TreatFirstLine{\bf}{}{\FunnyCommand}{\FunnyCommand}}
%D \stoptyping

%D \macros
%D   {reshapebox}
%D
%D \startbuffer
%D \beginofshapebox
%D When using \CONTEXT, one can also apply this funny command
%D to whole lines by using the reshape mechanism. Describing
%D this interesting mechanism falls outside the scope of this
%D module, so we only show the trick. This is an example of
%D low level \CONTEXT\ functionality: it's all there, and it's
%D stable, but not entirely meant for novice users.
%D \endofshapebox
%D
%D \reshapebox{\FunnyCommand{\box\shapebox}} \flushshapebox
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \getbuffer
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D This mechanism permits hyphenation and therefore gives
%D better results than the previously discussed macro
%D \type{\TreatFirstLine}.

%D \macros
%D   {TreatFirstCharacter}
%D
%D \startbuffer
%D \TreatFirstCharacter{\bf\color[green]} Just to be
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \getbuffer complete we also offer a very simple one
%D character alternative, that is not that hard to understand:

\def\TreatFirstCharacter#1#2% command, character
  {{#1{#2}}}

%D A previous paragraph started with:
%D
%D \typebuffer

%D \macros
%D   {StackCharacters}
%D
%D The next hack deals with vertical stacking.

\def\StackCharacters#1#2#3#4% sequence vsize vskip command
  {\vbox #2
     {\forgetall
      \baselineskip\zeropoint
      \def\StackCharacter##1{#4{##1}\cr\noalign{#3}}%
      \halign
        {\hss##\hss&##\cr
         \handletokens#1\with\StackCharacter\cr}}}

%D \startbuffer
%D \StackCharacters{CONTEXT}{}{\vskip.2ex}{\FunnyCommand}
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D Such a stack looks like:
%D
%D \startlinecorrection
%D \hbox to \hsize
%D    {$\hss\bfd
%D     \vcenter{\StackCharacters{TEX}    {}{\vskip.2ex}{\FunnyCommand}}%
%D     \hss
%D     \vcenter{\StackCharacters{CON}    {}{\vskip.2ex}{\FunnyCommand}}
%D     \hss
%D     \vcenter{\StackCharacters{TEXT}   {}{\vskip.2ex}{\FunnyCommand}}
%D     \hss
%D     \vcenter{\StackCharacters{CONTEXT}{}{\vskip.2ex}{\FunnyCommand}}
%D     \hss$}
%D \stoplinecorrection
%D
%D and is typeset by saying:
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D An alternative would have been
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \StackCharacters {CONTEXT} {to 5cm} {\vfill} {\FunnyCommand}
%D \stoptyping

%D \macros
%D   {processtokens}
%D
%D At a lower level horizontal and vertical manipulations are
%D already supported by:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \processtokens {begin} {between} {end} {space} {text}
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D \startbuffer[a]
%D \processtokens
%D   {\hbox to .5\hsize\bgroup} {\hfill}
%D   {\egroup} {\space} {LET'S HAVE}
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \startbuffer[b]
%D \processtokens
%D   {\vbox\bgroup\raggedcenter\hsize1em}
%D   {\vskip.25ex} {\egroup} {\strut} {FUN}
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D This macro is able to typeset:
%D
%D \leavevmode\hbox to \hsize
%D   {$\hfil\hfil
%D    \vcenter{\bf\getbuffer[a]}%
%D    \hfil
%D    \vcenter{\bfd\getbuffer[b]}%
%D    \hfil\hfil$}
%D
%D which was specified as:
%D
%D \typebuffer[a]
%D \typebuffer[b]

%D \macros
%D   {NormalizeFontHeight, NormalizeFontWidth,
%D    TheNormalizedFontSize}
%D
%D Next we introduce some font manipulation macros. When we
%D want to typeset some text spread in a well defined area, it
%D can be considered bad practice to manipulate character and
%D word spacing. In such situations the next few macros can be
%D of help:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \NormalizeFontHeight \name {sample text} {height} {font}
%D \NormalizeFontWidth  \name {sample text} {width}  {font}
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D These are implemented using an auxilliary macro:

\def\NormalizeFontHeight{\NormalizeFontSize\ht}
\def\NormalizeFontWidth {\NormalizeFontSize\wd}

% \def\NormalizeFontSize#1#2#3#4#5%
%   {\bgroup
%    \dimen0=#4% #4 can be \ht0 or so
%    \setbox0\hbox{\definedfont[#5 at 10pt]#3}%
%    \ifdim\wd0>\zeropoint
%      \dimen2=#10 % #1 is \wd or \ht
%      \dimen4=10000pt
%      \divide\dimen4 \dimen2
%      \divide\dimen0 \plusthousand
%      \dimen0=\number\dimen4\dimen0
%      \xdef\TheNormalizedFontSize{\the\dimen0}%
%    \else
%      \dimen0\bodyfontsize
%    \fi
%    \definedfont[#5 at \the\dimen0]%
%    \expandafter
%    \egroup
%    \expandafter\font\expandafter#2\fontname\font\relax}
%
% the familiar struggle with accuracy forces us to use:

\def\NormalizeFontSize#1#2#3#4#5%
  {\bgroup
    \dimen0=#4% #4 can be \ht0 or so
   \setbox0\hbox{\definedfont[#5 at 5pt]#3}% 10pt
   \ifdim\wd0>\zeropoint
     \dimen2=#10 % #1 is \wd or \ht
     \dimen4=\maxdimen % 10000pt
     \divide\dimen4 \dimen2
     \divide\dimen0 1638 % 1000
     \dimen0=\number\dimen4\dimen0
     \divide \dimen0 \plustwo % ...
     \xdef\TheNormalizedFontSize{\the\dimen0}%
   \else
     \dimen0\bodyfontsize
   \fi
   % mkii
   %    \definedfont[#5 at \the\dimen0]%
   %    \expandafter
   %    \egroup
   %   \expandafter\font\expandafter#2\fontname\font\relax}
   % mkiv safe (file: prefix etc)
   \expanded{\egroup\def\noexpand#2{\definedfont[#5 at \the\dimen0]}}}

%D Afterwards, we have access to the calculated size by:

\let\TheNormalizedFontSize\!!zeropoint

%D Extra:

\def\WidthSpanningText#1#2#3% text width font
  {\hbox{\NormalizeFontWidth\temp{#1}{#2}{#3}\temp\the\everydefinedfont#1}}

%D Consider for instance:
%D
%D \startbuffer
%D \NormalizeFontHeight \tmp {X} {2\baselineskip} {cmr10}
%D
%D {\tmp To Be Or Not To Be}
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D This shows up as (we also show the baselines):
%D
%D {\showbaselines\getbuffer}
%D
%D The horizontal counterpart is:
%D
%D \startbuffer
%D \NormalizeFontWidth \tmp {This Line Fits} {\hsize} {cmr10}
%D
%D \hbox{\tmp This Line Fits}
%D \stopbuffer
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D The calculated font scale is avaliable in the macro
%D \type{\NormalizedFontSize}.
%D
%D \startlinecorrection
%D \ruledhbox{\getbuffer}
%D \stoplinecorrection
%D
%D One can of course combine these macros with the ones
%D described earlier, like in:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \NormalizeFontHeight {text} \DroppedFont {2\baselineskip} {cmbx12}
%D
%D \def\NicelyDroppedCaps
%D   {\DroppedCaps
%D      {\color[green]}
%D      {\DroppedFont}
%D      {2pt}
%D      {\baselineskip}
%D      {2}}
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D It's up to the reader to test this one.
