Later this week, I shall be making a version of Charis SIL that is heavier then the normal version, but not as heavy as the ones I've posted. So stay tuned and you'll be able to have a version I think you'll be happy with.

I'm going to be doing Compact and Modified.

I finally got my fonts where I want them so I have actually been reading for a change. I had to resize all my fonts. I use my K4 as a guide on size 5 so now all my fonts match very closely to size 5 on both Kindles. I was getting eyestrain from having small fonts.

Unfortunately Size 4 on the PW is still too tiny. I would have to make a font Huge in order to get what I want but I can read comfortably at Size 5 so I've grown use to it. I suspect if the contrast was better on my PW I wouldn't have needed to do this.

I did make Palatino taller you are not seeing things. I like it much better now.

I use Amasis are my main font but it's nice to have choices.

Thanks! I shrunk it by 5% horizontal and Enlarge it 10% vertical then added weight to it. It no longer looks smooshed.

The Gentium Book and Charis Large I can offer by PM. It's not for everyone, It's great for those who have eye problems and need a larger font that isn't huge.

You can just post your Gentium Book version I think, as it's a free font AFAIK.

Yes it's under the SIL license so I share it through PM or Email.
I use my personal Dropbox so I don't want to post the link publicly.

I do have one question...

Do you think 1/2 the weight of the current Charis SIL will be OK? It would still be a heavier weight then the unmodified version.

I share Charis SIL via Mediafire. I have no problems with the number of downloads.

Don't use Mediafire though I do download from them. It gave my friend who was a novice at computers a virus due to the ads. I felt so bad so I don't use any File Hosting services with Ads because not everyone uses AD Block.

I'm not sure. I love the Palatino font but like it slightly darker. Does that help at all? I'm sorry if that's not very helpful.

I think you would like a fixed version of Charis with no weight added. It's already a dark font compare to Palatino.

A lot of sites that have ads get the ads from an ad server. The some of the ads being served can be dodgy. But that does not make the actual site a problem. For example, around Christmas, Google was saying that TrekBBS was a threat. It was because of some of the ads being served. But the site itself is fine. So don't blame Mediafire if a bad ad got served.

The ads on MediaFire are on the download page. But just because your friend click the wrong link is no reason not to use MediaFire. Besides, why not use MediaFire for hosting your modified fonts that you are allowed to give out? Then you won't have to use your Dropbox account.

I'll make a beta RAR that has Charis SIL's line spacing fixed with no weight added and also one with more weight and the line spacing fixed. Then JLeighs can choose which version of the font to use. It's no hassle since I do have to start over anyway. I'll just keep the pre-weighted version as well.
