versions (a scan of the original, which is not as good as the original)."

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


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