Re: Font Browsing or Previewing?


There are quite a few shareware and freeware font browsing programs.

I suggest going to some of the main shareware sites (sorry, can't help
you on url's at the moment) and search for what you need.

Back in the Win3.1 days, I had one  that could look through a whole
directory (I don't recall that they had to be "installed") and print out
a big book of sample sheets, etc.  It was great -- I just don't remember
the name of it.
