It seems like we need a fontconfig file with this package to fix rendering issues for character combinations like tt, ft, ti and fi (apparent in FireFox) with these fonts. For example, when a web page asks for Calibri (such as http://www.podciborski.co.uk/unix-news/can-unity-create-first-consumer-class-linux-distro/), FF renders the text great except the character combinations mentioned above appear somewhat blurred/bold but not exactly - it's weird.

http://pastebin.com/bYY7U0wn worked for me to fix Calibri. But, I am sure that other fonts (needs testing) should be included here when it goes with a package.

I think this package should be renamed to ttf-ms-extrafonts (which was deleted from AUR), because this fonts aren't specific to Vista (although they were introduced with it), but to all Vista+ MS programs. It's just confusing.

@louipc: the license is in the package. And yes, this may be illegal in some countries and not in others. If you are curious as to what the differences ("more liberal") are to the other package on the AUR, please read the respective licenses.

Thanks for your comments olive.
We still need the maintainer to include a copy of the license in the package.

@louipc These font comes from Powerpoint viewer 2007. According to:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=cb9bf144-1076-4615-9951-294eeb832823

You may use the fonts that accompany the PowerPoint Viewer only to display and print content from a device running a Microsoft

So using this package may well be illegal (I am not a lawyer, I cannot say if this is really enforceable).

Well, I was thinking that the name of this package is misleading.
Maybe it should be called ttf-powerpoint-fonts instead.

You said the license is more liberal than another Microsoft font package.
Can you please include the license in the package? Thanks.

Also add the dependencies 'xorg-fonts-encodings'.

True. Fixed.
