Updated to the May 25, 2011 release. I'll try to keep up on this pkg, however, any problems, aside from the acquisition of the files will need to be resolved elsewhere, I do not have the energy nor the desire to track down bug fixes for Microsoft software, but I will attempt to keep the releases up to date. Sorry for the past 6 months.

It seems that package 'fontforge' is required

I was quite busy recently, I will devote some time to this PKGBUILD in the near future. I hope I can iron out some of the rendering issues. Thanks to everyone for the pointers.

Also see: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=86976

(Yes, we can fix these with personal fonts.conf, but having these fixes included in this AUR package, bundled with the offending fonts is another thing (DRY))

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.

Update PKGBUILD for a compatible version namcap.

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.
