HOWTO baybayin

Baybayin input in Yudit with Baybayin.kmap

Introduction
------------

Babayin in the ancient writing system of the Tagalog people and other
tribes in the Philippines.  It is a syllabary with 3 vowels, 14
consonants and 2 punctuation marks.  Later in time, a virama or vowel
killer was added.

Installation
------------

It is assumed in this document that you have already installed yudit in
your machine.  

1.  Download a unicode baybayin font preferably the opentype font
"bbyiOT.ttf" and the keymap "Baybayin.my" from http://tagalog.ws. 

2.  Copy "bbyiOT.ttf" or any unicode baybayin font to 
/usr/share/yudit/fonts/  or ~/.yudit/fonts/

3.  After that modify /usr/share/config/yudit.properties or 
~/.yudit/yudit.properties with a text editor.

	Add a your new font by inserting the following line:

		yudit.font.MyFont=bbyiOT.ttf,...

	You can use this font in the editor window if you add it to:

		yudit.editor.fonts=.../MyFont,...

4.  Copy  "Baybayin.my" /usr/share/yudit/data/  or ~/.yudit/data/

5.  Start Yudit and select Myfont for fonts and Baybayin for keymap.

Now you can start typing in baybayin.  Have fun!
