Hello Brenda!
Every computer is different. Plus I need to test the de-compression
of those old font files, because de-compression software has changed
so rapidly and I have not updated that for a long time...

So answer me this...What operating system are you using? Windows 98,
ME, 2000, NT or XP?

Val ;-)

Tomas -
Why don't you download some of our True Type fonts in SignWriting?
Maybe you can test how we handled vector graphics that way? All of
the Fingerspelling Fonts are in True Type:

Download True Type Fonts

Test those fonts!

PLUS....Did you know that there are other True Type fonts in
SignWriting?... The three styles that I know of are...

1. Sutton Fonts
2. Woehrmann Fonts
3. Parkhurst Fonts

Stefan Woehrmann's fonts are terrific!! Take a look at this web page
which Stefan created with his fonts:

Take a look at the attached. It is a diagram that begins using
Stefan's TT fonts, but ends with a SWDOS sign...what a difference!
