I'm unable to download the file for the fonts. My computer keeps saying that the file is invalid.

You're right. I just downloaded the file and everything seems fine, but the file won't open. It did work before. Maybe JS can upload it again. If not, I have the file at home and can share later.

Strange, I just downloaded both files and could extract the fonts inside.

Maybe you can try to use another "unzip-tool"? I'm guessing your are using Windows.

Iwas able to download and open the zip and open and view the regular font with Windows 7.

I am using Windows. I tried your advice, and it worked. Thanks.

That is strange. I am using Windows 7's built in unzip capability, which is also how I opened it when I downloaded it the first time. It worked then. Didn't work yesterday. I dunno.

At any rate, I have the font already. If sneaky got the font, then no worries.

Have you been able to get the font or do you still need help?

Jon, note that the current ChareInk v1.1.zip file is actually RAR compressed (according to 7-zip). This could explain some peoples problems accessing the file. The NoWeight version is zip compressed. 7-Zip happily copes with either.

Thank you very much for catching that mistake. I've replaced the misnamed RAR file with a proper ZIP.

No problem, thank you for creating this. You've obviously spent a lot of time on it.

It's the first time I've given it a proper look. I'm still on my Sony PRS-650* and at first I thought the font was going to be too dark and the text too dense for comfort. But I've played with the line-height, and at 125% it looks very good and definitely easier on the eye when the light is not perfect. (Line-height of 110% gives about the same number of lines on the page as the default font, but being darker the text is still very dense.) Thanks to PRS+ I've been able to set it all up as the default (switch it in to replace the default), so I don't even have to update any of my ebooks.

* I've had my eye on a H20, but I do like my Sony and it's still going strong (touch wood).

I designed the original version using a T1 to test it. This version I decided I wanted to up the weight and as long as I was at it, improve the kerning and I used a newer version.

Thanks for this, Jon! I'd downloaded the font long ago but only just started using it now. Looks great and is perfect for those who prefer to use small font sizes and small line spacing settings.
