Jim, John, and all,

I'm running the latest IE 5.5 under WinMe. After I wrote that e-mail, I
started wondering what the font would look like with other browsers. I only
have IE installed on this box right now. Is there anyone on the list running

I'm wondering if there might be a CSS or IE specific work around for this.
I'll do some digging.
