    Thanks Fred! If you could somehow capture all of your font knowledge and put it in a program, you'd have the best font id progam around and be rich!

    I did that in 1994. It was named FontFinderTM. We sold it to lots of police departments, the FBI, Secret Service, and the CIA. We also sold it to about 75% of the professional forensic document examiners in the world.

    But when we showed it to sign companies, printers and other related types, the reaction we got was "ho hum" and "if my customer doesn't know the name of his own font why should I care? I can just use Helvetica Medium and make it fit the layout".
