Reproducing the official header of the Washington State University

On stackexchange someone asked for reproducing letters with the offocial header of the Washington State University using LaTeX instead of Word. Using KOMA-Script class scrlttr2 this is very easy to do.

While the official font of the Washington State University is ITC Strong Serif, a commercial font, it's easiest to use XeLaTeX oder LuaLaTeX. The example PDF in the attached zip file has been made using XeLaTeX.

The Washington State University logo is not part of the attached zip. The needed logo file `wsuSig4cW-crop.eps' has been made using:

wgetc -c http://identity.wsu.edu/downloads/files/signatures/PullmanSigsWindows/wsuSig4cW.zip
unzip wsuSig4cW.zip
epstopdf wsuSig4cW.eps
pdfcrop wsuSig4cW.eps
pdftops -eps wsuSig4cW-crop.pdf

Because of legal reasons, the logo in `wsu-letter.pdf' of the attached zip file has been exchanged with another, similar logo with the same dimensions and same edges but maybe not exactly the same line thicknesses and colors.

This example has not only be made to help members of the Washington State University to write their letters using LaTeX, but also as an general example of implementation of LCO files to reproduce letter heads.

Note, that `wsu.lco' supports one option nostrong. This option may only be set as global option at the optional argument of \documentclass. Setting this option using \FamilyOption doesn't help, because it must be set before loading the LCO. Currently \LoadLetterOption does not support options itself. The option disables automatic selection of main font `ITC Strong Serif LT', a TrueType font. With this option you may use the example without owning that font or using pdfLaTeX instead of XeLaTeX.
