Dennis (et al.),
I bought a 3 CD-ROM package from SoftKey several months ago that (in
addition to some 27,000 clip art images, 2500 photos, and 1200 sound .WAV
files) has 2300 fonts on it. Among them are three which do the very thing
you described in your request. They are in the Dexus Dingbats collections of
TrueType fonts. I have used all three at one time or another.
You didn't specify what platform you are using, but this package is for
Windows 95 and Windows 3.1. I don't know if it's available for Macintosh. It
was also *very* reasonably priced.
