The Tahoma font does belong to the webcore fonts. It was included in the last fonts pack that Microsoft released. Some mirrors have it, some don't.

In viewing Tahoma vs. Verdana on both Linux and Windows, the major difference is only in the intercharacter spacing. For what it's worth.

apt-get install msttcore fonts.

Your distribution of them here may get you in hot water....

Thanks for the concern, but I have followed the guidelines for redistribution of these fonts. These specific fonts only require that the apropriate EULA be maintained with the set for redistribution. The EULA is contained within the tarball as a README. If you use any of the aforementioned systems for downloading the fonts, you will find that your distro also includes the EULA as well.

I have previously exchanged heated words with several Microsoft employees over a few issues and am very careful to avoid giving them reason to make any threats towards me.

Best Regards

Sean
