Part IV: Unleashing Day-to-Day Windows 98 > Using Fonts in Windows 98

Chapter 20. Using Fonts in Windows 98

IN THIS CHAPTER

Letterforms conceal arbitrarily deep mysteries.

Douglas Hofstadter

Windows has turned many otherwise ordinary citizens into avid amateur typographers. People at cocktail parties the world over are debating the relative merits of serif versus sans serif fonts, expounding the virtues of typefaces with names like Desdemona and Braggadocio, and generally just byte-bonding over this whole font foofaraw.

OK, so most of us don't take fonts to that extreme. However, we certainly appreciate what they do to jazz up our reports, spreadsheets, and graphics. There's nothing like a well-chosen font to add just the right tone to a document and to make our work stand out from the herd.

This chapter shows you how Windows 98 and fonts work together. You learn just what fonts are and how Windows 98 sees them, and then you learn a few techniques for dealing with the fonts on your system.
