Doh! Ok. I guess I got overly focused on *one* way to get the font names. *Obviously* I am not a font expert. At least on Win98, many fonts are simply located in C:\WINDOWS\FONTS. Maybe there are other locations for some programs. So two platforms would offer simple solutions. Thanks for saving me from myself. --Scott Jones
