Looking at the special-s version, I noticed a few things:
Special Characters : Euro (& others) (p. 106)
The synthesized forms of the Euro, paragraphmark, copyright, registered,
and trademark make the limits of the default (or is it ec?) encoding
What's up with the promille?
Historical Notes : Courier
Off the top of my head, I thought Courier originated with (designed by?
commissioned by?) IBM. I can look into it.
Historical Notes : Charter
"Charter offers small cap, extension and alternate typographer sets that
help to make it more versatile and functional."
This is misleading in a book focussed on free TeXLive fonts. I would suggest:
"Bitstream offers small cap, extension and alternate typographer sets
that help to make Charter more versatile and functional."
Interesting design (as always!)
