Description Yariv Ido 2002-07-29 08:43:50 UTC
Some of the fonts available at have all the
encodings ( e.g. Arial, Times New Roman, Courier New ), including 8859-8 (
Hebrew ). I don't know if there's a legal issue ( License ), but from what I've
seen the current package already installs Microsoft's fonts under EULA.

The ones we distribute seems to be most (if not all) of those.  They do not
have 8859-8 encoding ?  If not,  is there a place where you can get all
in .zip and not as windows .exe ?
Comment 2 Yariv Ido 2002-07-29 15:13:55 UTC
No, they don't include 8859-8 encoding. You can open the windows .exe with
cabextract ( available in portage ).

Please checkout the new xfree-4.2.1 when it is released, as this should be fixed.
