Uh, before I get flamed by everyone for asking, in part, if someone would
"send me a font" (to paraphrase), please note that I do have the greatest
respect for type designers and wouldn't ask people to send me something
other than what's free, hence the reason that I said -- and here I quote
verbatim -- "Even better, are there any free fonts out there (hey, I'm
poor) like these that anyone knows of that are available for download or
that some kind soul would even just send me?".
Just trying to stem a deluge over a misunderstanding before it really
starts to happen as people start rolling into work this morning.<g>
