    Hi,

    I am making a site for a car audio manufacturer and am in need of some really cool fonts. Something like the ounces in http://www.lightningaudio.com/sound_nosound.htm would be perfect. Please le me know where I can download some.

    Thanks in advance!

    www.1001freefonts.com is where I usually get my fonts from. They're broken down alphabetically and show an example of each font.

    Hope this helps....

    Remember, if you are using the fonts to make graphics... okay... If you're using them in a font tag or in a CSS tag then hold on there a minute. If you use a rare font, ie not one preinstalled on windows most of your people will not see it when going to your site. They need to have the font on their computer in order to see it. There is a way to embed fonts in your page, but it only works with IE people and it's a complicated procedure. But there is directions on how to do it on microsoft's website.

    Both IE and Netscape support embedded fonts. Of course they both have different technologies to do so. Check out Netscapes developer site to find directions on how to do it in Netscape.

    Thanks for the tips!

    I went through 1001 Fonts, but didn’t find anything as detailed as the example I listed ( http://www.lightningaudio.com/sound_nosound.htm ). Dose anyone know of any other font sites? I need them to have very detailed, complex fonts.

    Thanks again.

    Go to http://www.fontmaster.com.

    There are some really nice fonts there and you browse alphabetically. Just pick a letter and start scrolling.

    Whenever I need something, I just go to Hotbot and type it in. Click search and voila thousands of links. I usually look at the top 25 and make my decisions based on their index pages.

    The problem with those free fonts is that they are of a very low quality. I like Adobe fonts because they are obviously labored over for months to get every little detail perfect.
