fonts-sil-charis - 6.200-1 main

Charis is similar to Bitstream Charter, one of the first fonts designed
specifically for laser printers. It is highly readable and holds up well in
less-than-ideal reproduction environments. It also has a full set of styles
- regular, italic, bold, bold italic - and so is more useful in general
publishing than Doulos SIL. Charis is a serif proportionally spaced font
optimized for readability in long printed documents.
The goal for this product was to provide a single Unicode-based font family
that would contain a comprehensive inventory of glyphs needed for almost any
Roman- or Cyrillic-based writing system, whether used for phonetic or
orthographic needs. In addition, there is provision for other characters and
symbols useful to linguists. This font makes use of state-of-the-art font
technologies to support complex typographic issues, such as the need to
position arbitrary combinations of base glyphs and diacritics optimally.
Four fonts from this typeface family are included in this release:
* Charis SIL Regular
* Charis SIL Bold
* Charis SIL Italic
* Charis SIL Bold Italic
Webfont versions and HTML/CSS examples are also available.
The full font sources are publicly available at
An open workflow is used for building, testing and releasing.
