Thanks for the URL for the font. Very nice indeed.

One drawback that I've found so far is that if someone else viewing the font doesn't have that font installed on their PC, they won't see it as it is intended. Is that correct?

I tried e-mailing a quick note to a co-worker today (via MS Outlook), and when he opened up the e-mail, the Porsche font wasn't shown... it defaulted to something else.

If you embed the font within an image, it can be viewed as it is supposed to be, but otherwise, I don't think it has much value unless others have that font installed.

Besides embedding it in images, what else has anyone used the font for?

Thanks.

Jim

I enlarges it to the size of my 4 spoke horn pad and used it as a mask (lettering is now black and the rest of the horn is burgandy.

You are correct, since they are true type fonts, if the receiver does not have it, their program will dafualt to whatever their font is normally set to.
