Hi Anny and Lucy!
Yes.....this is a matter of terminology. The term FONT in the  
software world, usually refers to either True Type or Bitmap fonts  
that are installed inside the operating systems of computers...

but Anny - I think it is great that you went to the work of putting  
French-Swiss Fingerspelling in SignPuddle..that is a lot of work I  
know, but important for SignPuddle users...

SignPuddle does not access True Type right now, so they are two  
different computer formats...

Lucy, I assume you found this link for the True Type fonts? Any  
trouble installing them?
