i was lookin around on the net for fonts and i found a file called "FF Trixie Plain" (im on a pc by the way), it didnt have an extention.
anyways, i saved it to my disk, but it saved it as a txt file, so i went into "edit" in dos and took off the .txt extention.
i dont really know alot about font programming and the like.
anyways i put it on my webspace at:
http://www.guernsey.net/~spaceman/stuff/
is it a font, and is there any way i can convert it for use as a ttf type font?
btw the site i found it at is:
ftp://ftp.netplace.de/pub/ixweb.de/
thanks alot for your help

Trixie is a type 1 PostScript font.
If you whant to know more about this font ( and lots of other fonts, go to the URL :

then look at the FF Trixie  fonts family.

If you are running Windows NT 4.0 you can easily convert Type 1 Fonts to TT-Fonts by simply drawing them into your /FONTS-Folder. With Windows 95 you have to use an extra utility like the one proposed by ACScomm
