Charis SIL

Charis SIL (1997-2006) is similar to Charter, one of the first fonts designed specifically for laser printers. It is highly readable and holds up well in less-than-ideal reproduction environments. It also has a full set of styles---regular, italic, bold, bold italic. Charis is a serif, proportionally-spaced font optimized for readability in long printed documents. Above all, it is a free four-weight Unicode-based font for all European and Slavic languages. Phonetic symbols are also covered. Contributors include Walt Agee, Miriam Martin, Annie Olsen, Victor Gaultney, Lorna Priest, Alan Ward, Bob Hallissy, Martin Hosken, Sharon Correll, Jon Coblentz, and Jonathan Kew. Typedia link.
