What I meant by Mac fonts is are they standard fonts on a Mac? I believe Helvetica is available as standard on a Mac whereas Windows PCs get Arial (and all of the other 'do not use' fonts too).

Neue Helvetica 55 Roman cost me £50! (OpenType TrueType) :shock: I was robbed but it looks cool... but I was robbed... ah well. If I want an italic version that's another £50 and if I want it bold... you get the idea! To buy the full set on CD would cost £1,314.95!

SPAM! Choose OT TTF for maximum compatibility, including MS Office 2010.

Calibri was my default font up until buying this but mainly used Courier New. I've never used Georgia. I could do with a poseurish serif typeface to go with Helvetica.

I have used both Comic Sans and MS Sans Serif as my font in windows messenger before - I don't know what it is at the minute - the default one.

Why would anyone pay £40 for a font? I can't get my head around that...

I turned font poseurish when I bought an orange iPod and started doing this site admin thing. The next step is a pair of Converse and a Fiat 500. :shock:

:lol: Well, I've done both of those things, and haven't turned font poseurish, I'm all for cool fonts and all that, but I'm perfectly happy with the fonts which microsoft give you already (for free as well of course) tbh

Do you know what would happen if everyone was vegetarian? There would be no need to have so much farm land for live stock, we could grow crops on it instead, and there would be enough food to feed the world about 7 times over

The world would be overrun by billions of uneaten chickens running around pecking at the crops.
