#comment: first of all, look at the size of this Re: going on :-)

But yeah, I see what you mean about the imagery. I can start to do some stuff like what you were talking about with the camel. I just need to get some different fonts for this linux box I have, and am using, because I only still have the base set of fonts, which almost all look just like typewriting text, with a few exceptions :-)

By the way, do you have any idea where I could get some standard fonts that would be compatible with RH linux? Thanks! And thanks for your input too!

Fonts on Linux
by John M. Dlugosz (Monsignor) on Sep 20, 2001 at 19:10 UTC
    Does it work with TT fonts? The ones that come with Windows and Office are decent now.

    From Bitstream you can get a CD full of high-quality stuff (TT and PS format) for pretty cheap.

      I'm not sure if TT ones work with RH linux, but if they do ... I'll make sure to test some out ... I have a cd of fonts from a long time ago, i'm not sure if they were TT fonts. I'll have to check. If so, that'd be great! I'll just have to find me some collections for cheap somewhere ...

        I no longer see anything like the cheap font collection on the Bitstream page. Funny thing is, I never really got much use out of mine anyway, since Windows improved their free fonts to the point where it's useable.

        I also found something called "Key fonts" or something like that. I think Key made various collections of clip art and other shovelware CD's. I used to use a Bookman font by SSI from that disc, 'till Office came out with a decent one. So, you might find disc's like that in a bin at your local consumer-style computer megastore.

        You can also download a bunch from Microsoft's Typography site.
