Thanks, Al!

To Everyone Else who replied:

See! I'm not nuts! I *was* in the Fonts folder and I *didn't* need to reboot.
Thanks also to Amy Smith who privately assured me of my sanity.

I haven't yet tried the nonsensical exercise outlined in the link that Al sent,
but at least I've attained sufficient geekiness to understand it.

Again saved by Techwhirlers,

My apologies, Kimber,
upon re-reading yr msg, I see you DO mention you do NOT have the Install New
Font option
on yr Fonts folder. This often happens.... sooo, whatcha gotta do is this:

Change the Fonts folder's attributes, in a seemingly nonsensical exercise,
but it works.

This article on MS site best recaps how to do it; so go to it:

I've had this happen [& know of it happening] many times over the years.
It's a Feature, not a BUG! [you'd think they'd've fixed this by now...]

ttfn,
Al
