Testimonial: FontLab is the creator of TypeTool and FontLab, two
programs for editing and creating both TrueType and PS fonts.  I tried
first tried TypeTool and found that I need more horsepower -- I
upgraded to FontLab and found the answer to all my problems.  While I
had a couple technical problems because of the really trashy fonts I

a couple of days and emailed me the new version.  They have given me
new hope in the concept of "service".

(I have absolutely no interest in any company or product mentioned
other than hoping for their continued success so that I can continue
to use enhanced products.)
