Introduction - Pango (241 words)
Pango is a library for laying out and rendering of text, with an emphasis on internationalization.
Pango can be used anywhere that text layout is needed, though most of the work on Pango so far has been done in the context of the GTK+ widget toolkit.
Pango depends on 2.x series of the GLib library; more information about GLib can be found at http://www.gtk.org/.
Open Source Awards 2004: Pango (929 words)
The stated goal of the ambitious Pango open source project is to provide a framework for the layout and rendering of internationalized text.
Pango 1.2, the current version of this award-winning framework, prefers the fontconfig and Xft2 libraries for locating and rendering fonts on Linux and UNIX.
The design of Pango is to have a compact core that's independent of all the different script modules and operating system back ends, and then let people interested in one script or another write the module for that script.
