I checked these "symbol" fonts both in the CorelDraw 5 Clip Art volume and
in CorelDraw 5 itself. The three bullet fonts are NOT TT fonts. (By contrast
"animals1" and "animals2" are TT fonts and, if I was sufficiently mad I
could be using them now as my screen fonts. The bullet files are installed
but they are not described as TT files and they do NOT appear in font lists.)
Susan was writing at home and didn't have immediate access to CD6. Could
somebody who has CD6 immediately available tell us whether the bullets are
now TT fonts.

I ask my friends to send me their internet
addresses and any group details that I should have.
TIA for your trouble.
