Package name abbreviations

Nearly every font family is available in a wide range of differently configured packages. There are packages that support Latin, Greek, Cyrillic and have Lining figures built in as default figure set. Others only support Latin, but come with Hanging figures and additionally built in Small Caps. To distinguish these packages from each other, we use a special scheme for naming our font packages.
