Those most likely to know hang out here: aka the Font ID board. Just don’t expect too...

Except I was not thinking of ratios, but of glideslopes. And Eras. Can’t forget Eras.

Hennyways, it works for me, and if it gives someone else… ideas… heh-heh-heh…

That’s what they looked like once I returned to consciousness after attempting a Chuck Norris-style roundkick.

No worries. I'm sure it will find a niche in far-future space movies as a wayfinding font.

Sounds like Mr. Phinney is having to deal with the kind of blockhead that denies anything that isn’t in a printed book.

If I recall correctly, I got Tempus Sans (and Westminster) with either Win98 or IE. For the record, I still have proper – and much used – copies of Win95 (European variant), Win98FE and Win98SE.

I did have enough sense to keep my trap shut – until now, that is. Can’t let your wife have false ideas, after all.

“Un-authoritative” Serif Body Typeface Suggestions

Should things go really droll, you could always try waving something like PT Serif or Liberation Serif or even Luxi Serif at them.

Have you tried asking on the Font ID forum ([[])? That’s where those who really know this stuff hang out. (This is just the posh way of saying I have no clue whatsoever.)
