Re: Fonts

If you are a Macintosh user I can highly recommend an
extension called Popchar, which places a small box on the
menu bar which allows you to select any character from the
current active font and insert it into whatever word processot
or text editor you are currently using.  I have heard that
Popchar doesn't always select the correct font in Word 6,
but I use Word 5.1, because I like it better.
