Fonts should be arch=('any')

@ louipic: I changed the URI to point to the new location. The package itself has not changed, however. I am not sure what is difficult to understand about how this PKGBUILD works. It should be self-explanatory. Just to make clear: it downloads the Powerpoint viewer and extracts the font files. The reason for this is that the license of this package is more liberal than that of the new (and superfluous) ttf-ms-extrafonts. In fact, there is no reason the latter package was created on the AUR. It should be removed.

The package website is invalid. I'm confused though.

You're fetching powerpoint viewer which is found here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=048dc840-14e1-467d-8dca-19d2a8fd7485&displaylang=en

But Microsoft has a page dedicated to Vista fonts and typography here:
http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/product.aspx?PID=149

It would be nice if you can explain what's happening in a comment in the PKGBUILD.
Thanks.

Those fonts are provided by ttf-ms-extrafonts. That package should be in the "conflicts" array.

ttf-ms-fonts doesn't provide those

use pacman -Qo to find out what does

this package DOES conflict with ttf-ms-extrafonts, because they provide the same thing in different ways

Does this package conflict with ttf-ms-fonts?

Why is this flagged out-of-date? Works perfectly fine for me.
