Thanks, Darren, for pointing us to this Web site. It does open up
possibilities--especially for intranets where everybody is using the latest
version of the browsers. Is it possible to put these fonts on the local
intranet server?

Anyway, considering the long download time, I'm not sure I'd want to put
any great quantity of these "Dynamic Fonts" on my Web site. Besides, there
are folks out there who don't use ver. 4 of the browsers.

For now, I'll stick with a combination of fonts saved in GIF or JPEG format
plus text pulled off the user's computer.
