Fonts: Utopia, Bitstream Charter, etc.

By popular demand, more free font stuff.

Type 1 fonts from about 1990, donated to the X windows project, I believe. The funny file names are for use with LaTeX, and you can change them. (Google can probably turn up pfm files if you need them, but on XP or, I think, if you use ATM then you don’t need them.)

Adobe Utopia. By Robert Slimbach, who also did for instance Minion and Adobe Garamond. ftp://tug.ctan.org/pub/tex-archive/fonts/utopia.zip

Bitstream Charter. Bitstream seems to treat Charter as its ‘flagship’, at least these days with the OpenType ‘Pro’ version (which this ain’t even close to being, but it’s better than McFont). ftp://tug.ctan.org/pub/tex-archive/fonts/charter.zip

Bitstream Courier. http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/psfonts/bitstrea/courier/pfb/ and http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/psfonts/bitstrea/courier/afm/

IBM Courier. ftp://tug.ctan.org/pub/tex-archive/fonts/psfonts/courier.zip
