Kretzschmar, Jr." Subject: Re: fonts SIL is a source of phonetic fonts, but maybe not for all purposes. They have two products: the SIL Bookstore will send you a disk with a freeware IPA font which is also available on servers (I have no address handy). SIL also has the Encore font set, now in version 2, which is a fully scalable package that includes a couple of different typefaces. I had trouble obtaining it, and in the end didn't buy it. The one review of it that I saw (on the Anglo-Saxonist's network, an early one) suggested that there were some faults in the font set that might cause problems. There are also phonetic fonts available from Adobe, both Times Phonetic and Stone Phonetic. These are fully scalable, commercial fonts. Last, I made bit-mapped phonetic fonts for the Linguistic Atlas in the late 80s. There is a VGA screen-font, and there are 14 soft fonts for downloading to HP Laser Jets. These are not scalable, and the screen fonts work at the DOS level (only DOS windows inside Windows). But they are free. I can provide more information privately.
