Mxedruli, Xucuri - The Georgian Alphabets

Metafont code by Berlin-based Johannes Heinecke (Lannion, France) for Georgian. It nowhas type 1 fonts as well. This is a short documentation of the two alphabets used by Georgian and some of its neighbouring languages from the Kartvelian language family. The first alphabet is called Mxedruli. Some letters used by Old Georgian or other languages such as Ossetian are also included. The second alphabet is called Xucuri. Whereas Mxedruli does differentiate majuscules and minuscules, Xucuri distinguishes between majuscules (also called Mrg(v)lovani) and minuscules (K. utxovani). However, in opposition to the Roman, Greek and Cyrillic alphabets in a text either majuscules or minuscules are used. They cannot be combined. Xucuri is now restricted to religious use.
