    Thanks in advance for you time and knowledge! I've got Arial bold for Wascott. Nothing right on for Fire Dept. though.

    FIRE DEPT looks like it may be Gerber's version of JENSON.....condensed a bit.

    Thanks Folks! It'd help if Illustrator let you scroll through previews of the actual text as does Corel. Oh , well can't win 'em all. Still an awesome program.
    Thanks again.

    Don't know what version of Illustrator you're using but you can do it in CS2 & CS3.

    Highlight your text.
    Click on the "Character" drop down to show your fonts.
    Use arrow keys to move up or down the list and your text will change to reflect which font is highlighted.

    FWiw,
    Todd
