" Dear Dennis,

I have the Windows XP Home Edition Operating System, as well as Office 2000 Professional loaded on my PC. I would like to know the site where I can get free TTF* fonts. The fonts that I have at present (which come standard with Office 2000) are very old. Does Microsoft give access to their font library? I will appreciate your reply! "

Side note: The acronym TTF stands for True Type Font, and is the standard font format used for Microsoft Windows and word processing applications.

My response:

I have always had a hard time finding free fonts on the Internet.

I tried searching Google for "free Microsoft TTF fonts", and neither of the top 2 results lead me to a font download pack on Microsoft's web site.

In the past, any font web site I've visited through the use of Search Engines gave me the run-around. A lot of the so-called font web sites out there have more advertising and flashy banners on their sites than they do font or font packs, mostly because fonts are in heavy demand.

Since I had so much luck asking Infopackets Readers for their favorite picks in the past, I'd like to ask for help with this one. If you know of a favorite free font web site which has fun TTF font packs (IE: more than 1 font in a .ZIP file), email me your suggestion below and I'll include an update in the next newsletter!
