    Hello everyone,

    I'm looking for a couple of nice, readable handwriting fonts that come standard on most PCs. Anyone know of some?

    Thanks!!

    lucida handwriting is the most common.
    if you want to use non-standard fonts i'd recommend making them small graphics rather than text.

    Dang, temis beat me to it... I also recommend Lucida Handwriting...very nice font.

    If you want something cursive (although it looks a little too precise to be someone's actual writing), Brush Script MT is nice...one of my favorites.

    Lucida Handwriting and Brush Script aren't on too many computers - not enough to use it reliably. Use graphics instead of text.

    Thanks everyone for the quick replies! I'll look into the font embedding and if that doesn't work, I'll try changing to graphics. Thanks again, I really appreciate it
