 \subsubsection{Choosing a Font Encodings}
 The same font can come in different encodings, which are (very roughly
 spoken) the ways the characters of a text are mapped to glyphs (the
 actual shape of a particular character in a particular font at a
-particular size). In \TeX\ two encodings are often used: the
-T1~encoding and the OT1~encoding (old T1~encoding).
+particular size). In \TeX\ two encodings are often used with Latin
+characters: the T1~encoding and the OT1~encoding (old T1~encoding).
 Conceptually, the newer T1~encoding is preferable over the old
 OT1~encoding. For example, hyphenation of words containing umlauts
 (like the famous German word Fr\"aulein) will work only if you use the
-T1~encoding. Unfortunately, only the bitmapped version of the Computer
-Modern fonts are available in this encoding in a standard
-installation. For this reason, using the T1~encoding will produce
-\pdf\ files that render very poorly.

+Computer Modern fonts, are distributed on small installations just as
+MetaFont sources and only have bitmap renditions of each glyph. For
+this reason, using the T1-encoded EC fonts on such small installations

-Most standard PostScript fonts are available in T1~encoding. For

+MiK\TeX\ (for Windows platforms) and \texttt{teTeX} for

+completeness. Concerning the Computer Modern fonts, the following
+packages can be installed: |cm-super| fonts, |lmodern| (Latin Modern)
+fonts, and |lgc| fonts, the latter containing the Latin, Greek, and
+Cyrillic alphabets. Concerning other fonts,  the |txfonts| and
+|pxfonts| are two extended sets of the Times and the Palatino
+PostScript fonts, both packages containing extended sets of
+mathematical glyphs. Most other standard PostScript fonts are also

 \subsection{Changing the Fonts Used for Different Elements of a Presentation}


+Where to begin? \beamer's development depends not only on me, but on
+the feedback I get from other people. Many features have been
+implemented because someone requested them and I thought that these
+features would be nice to have and reasonably easy to implement. Other
+people have given valuable feedback on themes, on the user's guide,
+on features of the class, on the internals of the implementation, on
+special \LaTeX\ features, and on life in general. A small selection of
+these people includes (in no particular order and I have surely
+forgotten to name lots of people who really, really deserve being in
+this list): Carsten (for everything), Birgit (for being the first
+person to use \beamer\ besides me), Tux (for his silent criticism),
+Rolf Niepraschk (for showing me how to program \LaTeX\ correctly),
+Claudio Beccari (for writing part of the documentation  on font
+encodings), Thomas Baumann (for the emacs stuff), Stefan M�ller (for
+not loosing hope), Uwe Kern (for \textsc{xcolor}), Hendri Adriaens
+(for \textsc{ha-prosper}). People who have contributed to the themes
+include Paul Gomme, Manuel Carro, and Marlon R�gis Schmitz.
