Re: Fonts in Windows text boxes
I had read David's original post and found it just as ambiguous (amtriguous??)
But based on your belief as to his meaning, I've just posted a query to comp.fonts. I'll report back if anyone knows the answer.
I haven't forgotten about this subject, but it took until now to get a response from any of the font experts.
The pseudonymous Triple Fluffy, over at alt.binaries.fonts, says, "Some fonts are set by Control Panel / Display / Appearance. Other
fonts (such as Tahoma) are listed explicitly as entries in the
registry. Almost anything else defaults to the bitmapped System font."
From that I conclude that, to the best approximation of authoritative information currently available to me, you cannot change the font used in Windows dialog text fields.
If I get further information, I'll let you know.
