I had someone in another forum (facebook) ask where did I get the fonts I used on 'Santa's naughty list' sign.
Not sure who turned me on to this site but here it is for anyone who's looking for some cool fonts and dingbats.

Cary; those are great fonts! Excellent selection.
Thanks for the link. I particularly appreciate the instructions at the link on how to correctly download and file them (I tend to get confused when doing stuff with non-MS software...Open Office for example)).

Also, if you want to see all of your fonts installed on your PC, check out "Show Your Fonts" by Wade Instruments. I have it on my computer and it works well.
Show Your Fonts - Display All Your Computer Fonts

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Dan, did you extract it and install the font?

If you download and install the small app I linked to above, it will show all of the fonts you have installed on your PC in one or two pages.

You might have to restart Windows.

Here is a screenshot of "Show Your Fonts" displaying a page of the fonts on my PC.

OK, Mike. Did that, also updated Irfanview and Open Office, just in case.
The font list app works fine, but it hasn't listed the two fonts I downloaded although they show up in the Download folder...? Also don't show up in the OpenOffice font list.
And yes, I unzipped them.
