Subject: help re online fonts
Can anyone help please, I am reffing a dispute and don't know the answer:
We are developing a Windows GUI application and there is disagreement as
to whether to use MS Sans Serif or Arial. Can anyone provide information
which is better.
Secondly I have to edit one of these fonts to create a r with a small v
on top. The standard in either font's "foreign" letters don't contain
this letter. Can anyone recommend a package preferable shareware to do
I would really appreciate any information about this.
