Summary

This chapter looked at how Windows 98 works with fonts. You began by learning some font fundamentals, including the three main classification schemes for fonts: “architectural” (typeface, type size, type style, and character spacing), output device (screen or printer), and font-rendering mechanism (raster, vector, or TrueType.) I then showed you how to view and open font files, install new fonts, delete old fonts, and troubleshoot some font woes. I even threw in some info about the Character Map accessory for good measure. For more font-related information, check out the following chapters:

  • Chapter 6, “Customizing the Taskbar, Start Menu, and Display,” is the place to learn how to change the system fonts—the fonts used in the Windows 98 interface.

  • I showed you how to work with keyboard layouts and Windows 98's Multilanguage support in Chapter 8, “Customizing the Mouse, Keyboard, and Other Input Devices.”

  • If you need some background on the Registry, try Chapter 12, “Getting to Know the Windows 98 Registry.”

  • Fonts and printing are closely related. I'll discuss printing in Chapter 21, “Prescriptions for Perfect Printing.”

  • You learn how to adjust the DOS window font in Chapter 23, “DOS Isn't Dead: Unleashing the DOS Shell.”
