Add New Fonts

Windows XP includes an all-purpose assortment of TrueType and OpenType fonts that you can use to see a variety of typestyles in documents and on the Web. When you install some new programs, they add fonts to your system. With just a bit of searching on the Web, you can find additional fonts, in all shapes, sizes, and degrees of ornamentation, which you can easily download and install. You can use fun fonts in headlines, staid fonts for business documents, and even fonts that mimic handwriting, when you want your printed document to look as though you wrote it by hand.

Lingo

TrueType and OpenType are the technical terms for standards that define typefaces used in Windows. Although Windows XP can use several other types of fonts, virtually all the fonts you add to your system follow one of these standards. When you search for new fonts on the Web, make sure they are compatible with one of these standards.
