    I can see them all, but have no way of knowing
    if I'm seeing them correctly since numbers/letters
    will always be displayed, even if a different (or
    default) font must be used.

    Where you're gonna run into problems is with the
    symbols (pictures) that take the place of regular
    numbers/letters in some fonts.

    Cheers, Mac :)

    aahhhh, true,

    I will have to make up a list of possible symbols that I would use. I actually didn't find anything interesting.

    except your computer!

    Hehe, well I don't have a copyright on it... :)

    Pretty much the only "picture" fonts that came
    with Windows 95 are the "wingdings" and
    "symbol" fonts.

    Ya could always do ASCII art...
    Code:
                      ''~''
                     ( 0 0 )
             +---oooo--(_)--oooo---+
             |                     |
             |    ASCII            |
             |                     |    
             |           ART       |
             |    ooooO            |
             |    (   )   Ooooo    |
             +-----\ (----(   )----+
                    \_)    ) /
                          (_/
    

    Cheers, Mac :)

    – Like this? —

    ˜ Or this? ™

    š Or this? ›

    œ Or this? 


    These are all from the "wingdings" font (included
    with Win95), and this is VB code so ya can copy
    and paste the chars if ya want...

    Cheers, Mac :)

    OK guys, here's pretty much all the "wingdings"
    that show up on Windows 95:


    ! " # $ % & ' ( ) * + , - . / 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 : ; < = > ? @ A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z [ \ ] ^ _ ` a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z { | } ~  €  ‚ ƒ „ … † ‡ ˆ ‰ Š ‹ Œ  Ž   ‘ ’ “ ” • – — ˜ ™ š › œ  ž Ÿ   ¡ ¢ £ ¤ ¥ ¦ § ¨ © ª « ¬ ­ ® ¯ ° ± ² ³ ´ µ ¶ · ¸ ¹ º » ¼ ½ ¾ ¿ À Á Â Ã Ä Å Æ Ç È É Ê Ë Ì Í Î Ï Ð Ñ Ò Ó Ô Õ Ö × Ø Ù Ú Û Ü Ý Þ ß à á â ã ä å æ ç è é ê ë ì í î ï ð ñ ò ó ô õ ö ÷ ø ù ú û ü ý þ ÿ

    They're shown in VB code...

    Cheers, Mac :)
