Not only did the download URL change, the folder structure changed too and thus the install commands will need some adjustments.

New link is:

https://practicaltypography.com/fonts/Charter%20210112.zip

Could the maintainer amend the package, please.

This seems to be the correct download link for ttf-bitstream-charter as the zip file contains three folders, one each for TTF, OTF, and WOFF:

https://practicaltypography.com/fonts/Charter%20200512.zip

[There is a space after Typography and before 200512.zip]

Kindly repackage.

Thanks.

http://practicaltypography.com/fonts/charter.zip

gives a

File not found (404) error.

I do not know if this is transient or permanent.

Installation fails accordingly.

I adopted this package updated the PKGBUILD and add a fontconfig file. A lot of website are using "Bitstream Charter" name for this font but the system name is just "Charter" so it's not working properly without the alias.

I also added the otf files as well. There is the otf-bitstream-charter package if you don't need the fontconfig file.
