Does anyone have a list (personal or published) that groups the
knock-off fonts with the original one? Or, if you can just think of a few
copy-cat fonts along with the original, that would help also. I need help
in controlling the number of fonts that we have on our PC's. It seems like
every software package out there comes complete with 10-30 additional
fonts. Right now we have over 200 fonts that eat up system resources.


If people will respond directly to me, I will gladly compile a list for
everyone and put it out here.

Please excuse this mail if it double posts--our mail server went down this
morning and I was told all outgoing mail was lost....
