Improved Charis SIL with smallcaps

I've improved Charis SIL a little by darkening it up slightly so it looks better on an eink screen in lower light. Also, I've done the same to the smallcaps variation. I am making these available to anyone who wants. I find Charis SIL to be a very readable font on eink. Enjoy.

Excellent, thanks a lot! I've been wanting exactly this or something similar for a while.

I figured since I was giving it out to someone else, I decided to make it public since I had it posted online where I could just give out the link.

I find it looks nice and I can easily read at a smaller font size. I'm using 93% and this way, I get more per line and more lines per screen and I am not using any line height.

Code:
body {
  font-family: serif;
  widows: 0;
  orphans: 0;
  margin-top: 0;
  margin-bottom: 0;
  margin-left: 0;
  margin-right: 0;
  text-align: justify;
  font-size: 93%
}
That's the body style I use. I map Charis SIL to serif as the font-family name.

I've just found out that on some readers, the fonts don't work perfectly because I changed the internal name. I've unchanged the internal name back to normal and they should work fine now on all readers. Please grab the new set from the new link in post #1.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

I've created a new set of Charis SIL. Both with smaller line spacing and more weight.

The Modified has more of a line space and looks good on a Kindle using KF8. It fixes the line space issue. The Compact has tighter line space for those that like that and it looks good on a Kindle with KF8.

For ePub, either font is fine as ADE handles them both no problem. So enjoy!

Does the license allow you to change the font and still call it Charis SIL, and/or use that internal name (in the font metadata)?

I did change the names. One set is Charis SIL Modified and the other is Charis SIL Compact. Yes, I am allowed to do what I am doing and legally so.

Quote:
3.1 Can I change the fonts? Are there any limitations to what things I can and cannot change?
You are allowed to change anything, as long as such changes do not violate the terms of the license. In other words, you are not allowed to remove the copyright statement(s) from the font, but you could put additional information into it that covers your contribution.

3.6 Do I have to make any derivative fonts (including extended source files, build scripts, documentation, etc.) publicly available?
No, but please consider sharing your improvements with others. You may find that you receive in return more than what you gave.

Thank you, Jon. Do you think this is the final version? or are you going to play with it some more?

You are very welcome.

These two versions are final. I am going to make another compact version because someone wants the compact line space with it being less thick.

I am also going to try modifying the font to make it bigger for the Kindle for those that want it larger by default.

So I may have other versions but not of these specific ones.

Thanks for these Jon. Installed them on my new PW and I've been using the Charis SIL Compact. Looks very nice.

Hi JSWolf,
Just wondering if you had that larger Charis SIL for Kindle, as I really like the sound of it?
Maybe you could post it here?

I will post the link to the larger version (once done) here and in the Kindle PW font thread.

Can you rename the two fonts (Charis Modified and Charis Compact) so I can load both versions and see which one I like better? Right now, the names of the actual font files are the same, so I can have one or the other.

Yep...name them whatever you want (as long as you have the -Bold, -BoldItalic, etc, moniker at the end of the name).

Will renaming the file change the name that displays on the Aa menu?
