    What font is this?

    I was wondering what the font was of the writing on the top left hand corner logo of http://www.britannica.com (the logo saying "britannica.com")

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Man...that's really close, but not quite it.

    you can tell on the t and the c.

    isuru...you could always email the webmaster/designer of the Britannica site and simply ask them. I have found that if you come across as appreciative and admiring then they are usually very helpful.
