Gettin' old, but still a hippie at heart...


Copied from Troll "Test" Thread. If anyone's interested, I did some tests, and we have the following and some additional fonts:

I don't think these work:
Monaco
Palatino
Onyx
Rockwell
They default to the original, but I'm told some of them work in titles.

Tthese seem to work:
Impact
Helvetica
Times
Bauhaus
mistral

And additionally:
Arial
Benguiat
Vivaldi
galliard
bellevue
madrone
signature

I think wheter they show up or not is the website--'cuz I've got Friz Quadrata on MY computer, but it's not showing up. Can anyone who sees this correct it if any of the additional fonts don't show up? Thx.

You were busy trying to get yourself lit on fire. It happens.


I'm just playing.

Edit:

These work for me:
Impact
Helvetica
Times
Bauhaus
mistral
Arial
Benguiat
Vivaldi
rockwell


These don't seem to work for me:
galliard
bellevue
madrone
signature
monaco
palatino
onyx


I changed the font size so I could see them better. And now I'm done editing this post.

Monaco, Palatino, and Onyx are the only ones of that group that are working for me.

The others I *DO* have on my Mac, so I know it's capable of showing them.

I'm still playing with my list in the other thread, hoping to get it *complete* (as far as my computer's typefaces go, at least) soon. I'm ONLY leaving in the ones that actually work for me, so if it you're not seeing it on your machine, I'm not sure what the issue is. And nowhere near all my fonts are showing up when I put them in here, so it's something between various machines, forum software, and maybe a couple other variables.

But once we have this awesome power over words, whatever shall we do with it? Shall we use it for good, or Evil (When pronounced archly, as "Eeeee-Ville", it simply MUST be capitalized). I was thinking of making a place for virtual villains to hang out, and calling it E-ville.com. Yes, I'm weird. No, it's not contagious. Or is it?

Oh, now THAT's weird! Monaco, Palatino and Onyx were the ones that DON'T work for me...or Yinyang, yet they're the ones that DO work for you. Duhhhh...

Obviously too complex to figure out...oh well. I'm gonna use my chosen fonts anyway, apparently some can see them and some can't. Sigh...

Machines. I INSIST they have minds of their own...

I vote we use the power (once we GET it un-confused!) for good...there's enough power around being used for Eeeville!

Okay, I'm a little bit brain-wiped now...

This is what I've got so far:

Colors that work (so far):

aqua
brown
black That's black.
blue
cyan
gold
gray
green
magenta
maroon
navy
olive
orange
pink
purple
red
sienna
silver
teal
turquoise
violet
white
yellow

Extra-Special Huge Thanks to PENGUIN for formatting these in a fashion that I could steal. Errr... I mean *copy*. Uhhh... I mean IMITATE. Yeah. That's it. :)

No, actually I just stole his, and then added the others that I've found so far. Now I need to add in YinYang's Chartreuse and Mauve number tags as well.


Font sizes that work for me:
12
6
5
4
3
2
1



I don't know why, but font sizes 7-11 just default to 12. Weird.

Font faces that work (for me, at least)

Ayuthaya
Baskerville
Bauhaus
Braggadocio
Century
Cochin
Copperplate
Courier
Cracked
Didot
Eurostile
Futura
Garamond
Gulim
Harrington
Hei
Helvetica
Herculanum
Impact
Krungthep
Mistral
Monaco
Nadeem
New Peninim MT
News Gothic MT
Onyx
Optima
Osaka
Palatino
Papyrus - Well, OF COURSE that would work - it's the "Serenity" typeface!!! Playbill
Rockwell Extra Bold
Sathu
Silom
Skia
Stencil
STFangsong
STHeiti
STKaiti
STSong
Times
Times New Roman
Zapfino

I'll have to play around with the ending "/font" script to see if that helps, but for now I've got a brain-ache.

Can't tell which of those work for me, mostly, because you have to do the "end font" thing before you start another one...I think the ones I see in the same font style are all defaulting to the last font it "recognizes" on my machine.

Well, none of them have bodies, so it'd be a brown coat hugging their heads, which would be awfully weird. But IIRC Penguin made a penguin smiley with a brown coat.
