Reason for closing:  Rejected
Additional comments about closing:  I have removed the attached file to the original task since Rockbox does not have permission to distribute these files. If you are serious about letting other people use these fonts with Rockbox, you need to collect permission from the original authors to redistribute the fonts.

according to xp that zip is corrupt. and whats thelicense on the fonts?

The zip file downloads and extracts fine for me.

I had a look at, and the original download page for these fonts just contain the ttf files, and no copyright or licensing info.

In the absence of explicit permission from the copyright holder to redistribute them, they can't be included in Rockbox, and shouldn't be posted to this tracker.

They are probably also too specialist to be included in Rockbox anyway.

Could we please at least create a wikipage for optional fonts?

No, not unless we have explicit permission from the copyright holder.
