    That was quick, Gene. Is it possibly known under a different name? Can't locate that one anywhere on my font CD's.

    Found a website saying Monotype Corsiva = Adobe Zapf Chancery Medium Italic, I'd agree at a quick glance, but upon inspection they are different, and the example you provided is definitely Monotype Corsiva (based on the naming I have on my machine and the link above). There may be other "clones" but I'm not sure of their names.

    I'm not sure but I think Microsoft includes it with Windows or possibly Office.

    Here is a comparison of what I have w/ your sample - I searched my machine for a duplicate (I have too many) no such luck, sorry. I also searched for Monotype Corsiva clones to no avail.

    Geez, thanks Gene and Fred. I've decided to use the Zaph thing. Had the font under that name. Of course, it's not exact, but I modified it enough that it will work.

    This site rocks!

    Getting Corel's fonts was worth the $179 I paid for the program. But now that I have Flexi I never use Corel. I got a laptop this past Mon. I installed Corel today and noticed a bunch of fonts I did not even know it had on one of the clipart cd's. That brings my total up to 16000 at my finger tips using bitstream font nav.
