Hi
I believe it will be better if you enable antialiasing in kde before taking the screenshot.

Why didn't you upload the thing to kde-look.org? Is it too big?
'Cause your site is not available right now, so I got to wait.
Besides that, good work, where to find more fonts(perhaps not MS-ones only)?

For those who can't download the RPM's, there is a script at http://www.linuxquebec.com/~nomis80/msttf which downloads the fonts automatically, installs them, and configures your XftConfig so that they work.

BTW, these RPM's are illegal. Only MS can distribute its fonts, you can't redistribute them. The script is legal since it downloads the fonts right from MS's servers.

Info on MS Core Fonts Distrubution from http://www.microsoft.com/typography/faq/faq8.htm
and
http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fontpack/eula.htm
Guessing by this paragraph in the EULA:
Reproduction and Distribution. You may reproduce and distribute an unlimited number of copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT; provided that each copy shall be a true and complete copy, including all copyright and trademark notices, and shall be accompanied by a copy of this EULA. Copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT may not be distributed for profit either on a standalone basis or included as part of your own product.

this RPM may be breaking the rules. Placing the actual cabs from Microsoft on your website and an extraction utility it appears is not.
