    Times New Roman / Impact?

    Goudy / Helvetica?

    Frutiger / Stone Serif?

    I feel a freedom I've never had before .... :D

    Not that you can use it on copy type or news headlines, but I like futura and skia. I'll take a thin, san-serif font over thick serif font anyday.

    The person who invented Stone Serif should be stoned, and I don't mean in a good way.

    But it's not in courier!

    Is there one source out there with font examples, for lack of a better term, a font cheat sheet? I hate fudging through 10,000 fonts in Quark to find something I don't want.

    Try this for starters. It's got a lot of them.


    Also Google "font examples."

    Franklin Gothic family FTW.

    I would type this in Franklin Gothic, but it doesn't appear to be an option. What fonts CAN we use here?
