CTAN update: realscripts

This should be at your local mirror.

Jim Hef{}feron
Saint Michael's College

................................................................................

Announcement: is requested
Update summary:
This small package replaces \textsuperscript and \textsubscript commands
by equivalent  commands that use OpenType font features to access
appropriate glyphs if possible.

Version 0.3 contains the following changes:

  * New commands \textsubsuperscript and \textsupersubscript added.

  * Fix an "infinite loop" bug added in the last version, triggered
 when loading the `xltxtra` package with the `[no-sscript]` option.

\textsubsuperscript (and friend) could actually be implemented as a
separate package for  pdfLaTeX as well. I'll consider releasing such a
thing if there's feedback to do so :)

Basic package information, as sent by the contributor.

Location: /macros/latex/contrib/realscripts
Caption: Access OpenType subscript and superscript glyphs.
