Do you know:

- if it is possible to find these fonts for free (I surfed the net and was able to find only "free font shops" that sold these fonts...

- how I can install them in Windows XP (which directory? is it sufficient to copy/paste? etc.)

thanks!

These fonts come with any Windows OS Feb 3, 2004

You have them allready, if you have the european Version of Windows XP.
They are not shown by applications running Unicode, such as Word, but Pagemaker does not support Unicode, so you will be abl to see Arial and Arial CE, Arial Cyryllic and other Arial types in Pagemaker.
You only have to assure, that the CP 1250 is checked. Go to Start - Control Pannel - Regional and laguage settings - Enhanced and check, if CP 1250 is selected (which it is by default).

Kind regards
Jerzy

You have it for free.
The standard Unicode Arial, Times etc are available on your Windows XP install CD.

If you need correspodnent Postcript fonts (e.g. Frutiger) you must contact the appriopriate vendor.

Just install the support for CE languages.
Control Panel, Regional and language options.

You cannot select any font in Notepad Feb 3, 2004

You can not select Arial, Times or any other font in Notepad. This is OK so.
To write in Notepad in any language, just switch your keyboard to the desired language, then you´ll be able to write in this language. This works only in Win 2k/XP.

Kind regards
Jerzy

Menu "Format", "Font".
In the dialog box, the "Script" listbox.

But, instead of Notepad, consider using another program, like UltraEdit or PFE.

Arial CE Feb 3, 2004

Hello,

Arial CE is only a mapping from the Windows Arial unicode fonts for software which is not able to use unicode fonts directly.

You can use Word 95 if you want to format a text manually with Arial CE. After you save them as a rtf file, you can use Word 2 for save them as a ANSI text file. The newer word versions will produce some wrong characters in the text file.

With Word 2000 and Windows 2000 you can install additional codepages. After this you can save a word file in the desired coding. I don't check if the codes are always correct, but maybe ...

With kind regards

Hans

Of course, is for display only.
You can't define fonts in pure txt format.
