Ooh, a French Renaissance roman (according to my manual's terminology, anyway)! I expect it would look lovely in print, but it's really not the kind of font I'd choose for on-screen display. Well, maybe I would, but only if the only alternative were a Romantic roman (or a really ugly Postmodernist font). So, no, you're not the only one. ;-) [rest snipped] Regards, Julia -- Julia Simon (Schnecki) -- Sprachen-Freak vom Dienst _@" schnecki AT iki DOT fi / helicula AT gmail DOT com "@_ si hortum in bybliotheca habes, deerit nihil (M.
