[BKARTS] A site for font fans ...

Some of you are interested in text styles and fonts. Font fanatics should check out fontscape (www.fontscape.com). I discovered it from the researchbuzz.com newsletter, a neat resource for researchers with a internet/ technical bent. 

Each font listing includes a full sample of the font with links to where the font can be purchased. Free fonts with download links are also there. 

Below are the categories ...
