CTAN Comprehensive TeX Archive Network

Directory fonts/charissil

This is the README for the charissil package, version 6.001,
release 2021-08-21.

This package provides the CharisSIL family of TrueType fonts
adapted by SIL International from Bitstream Charter. Because
of the Reserved Font Name licensing restrictions, type1
versions are not available and documents must be processed
using xelatex or lualatex.

To install this package on a TDS-compliant
TeX system download the file
where the preferred URL for "tex-archive" is
http://mirrors.ctan.org. Unzip the archive at the root of an
appropriate texmf tree, likely a personal or local tree. If
necessary, update the file-name database (e.g., texhash).

To use, add


to the preamble of your document. This will activate
CharisSIL as the main (serifed) text font. Regular, Italic,
Bold and BoldItalic styles are available. The only figure
style is tabular-lining.

Options scaled=<number> or scale=<number> may be used to
scale the fonts.

The fonts are licensed under the SIL Open Font License,
version 1.1, with Reserved Font Names "Charis" and "SIL".
The text may be found in the doc directory. The rest of the
package is licensed under the terms of the LaTeX Project
Public License. The maintainer of this package is Bob
Tennent (rdt at cs.queensu.ca).

Download the contents of this package in one zip archive (1.8M).
