13.6. Fonts

Some extremely sophisticated programming has gone into the typefaces that are listed in the Fonts dialog boxes of your word processor and other programs. They use OpenType and TrueType technology, meaning that no matter what point size you select for these fonts, they look smooth and professional—both on the screen and when you print.

13.6.1. Managing Your Fonts

Windows XP comes with several dozen great-looking OpenType and TrueType fonts: Arial, Book Antiqua, Times Roman, and so on. But the world is filled with additional fonts. You may find them on the CD-ROMs that come with PC magazines, on Windows software Web sites, or in the catalogs of commercial typeface companies. Sometimes you'll find new fonts on your system after installing a new program, courtesy of its installer.
