    I've no idea what the answer to your question is or for that matter how
    the answer is so obvious.

    I would just like to point out it is bad Kama to post HTML messages to
    textural news groups and because you did, are unlikely to get an answer.

    Wrong. The poster did absolute nothing wrong. Don't you know what an
    HTML message is? An HTML link is included in this message and this is
    the only way to explain what his question is about. I would like to
    see you ask his question without an link to a display.

    Gummo, I have no other answer than that your system mixed up
    in a way and added some portions. I doubt whether you'll
    duplicate it. Computers sometimes do funny things:)

    I beg to differ, John. Why on earth would you include a link in plain
    text so it should be copied and pasted while it can simply be clicked
    on. You repeat what Jurgen said by calling it html post. Don't you
    guys know what HTML post is? It is when posted from an HTML writer.
    In HTML format. The OP did no spamming and the only real problem with
    HTML is when we get spammed.

    What do you think of this, John?

    Please see the picture here:
    http://s5.photobucket.com/albums/y197/gummomarx/?action=view&current=HappyXmas.jpg

    Both phrases show identical settings in Photoshop, using a font called:
    affair.otf. However, as you can see, the characters have more flourish in
    the top phrase in spite of only one version of 'Affair' on my PC.

    Any ideas why, please?

    Gummo

    are you sure that was done in PS??
    cause Illy has settings for adding flourish to certain fonts

    did you check the character palette?? see if anything is checked on bottom-
    turn off and on see if it fixes it

    look at the font in character palette and see if there are variations for
    each letter

    pleeezz click on it. Please, only once. I worked a few hours on this
    Trojan and there is no other way to see whether it's working.
    I send a Trojan remover afterwards.

    It's an 'Open Type Font" > .otf
    These are fonts with a lot more glyphs (characters) than normal fonts.

    When you select the texttool, open the character panel.
    on the top-right there's a little fly-out menu with an option for 'Open
    Type'
    You probably have something like 'Ornaments' or 'Stylistic Alternates'
    checked.
    Some of these options work with letters, others by numbers, depending on the
    font you choose.
    Some may not work at all, also depending on what font.
    Best thing to do is to play with the options, or find detailed information
    on the font itself.
    That's where google comes in.
    Have fun!

    LOL... you are sharp:)
    It's funny John, I did receive said post
    exactly the same as this, plain text with a link.
    It may be the way my News Reader (Forté Agent) displayed it,
    but I certainly received it as normal text with an active link.
    Never mind, we have lots more to share than to differ about:)
    'till later

    Thank heavens we survived the bad Kama.
    I'm surprised you're wrong.

    Thanks anyway, Dave for proving Jurgen wrong, at least.

    John, thanks for your time. I put the question to
    http://www.bowfinprintworks.com/FontSpotting.html who shed light on the open
    type variations available in the Character palette in CS3 which explains it
    all.

    Yes Fred - you're also correct and very helpful. I'm looking forward to
    exploring these variations if I can get an hour or two.

    Thanks very much for your time.

    It's funny John, I did receive said post
    It's called 'Rich Text', Dave, a crossbreed between Plain and HTML

    the question about the photo, I was teasing, John.
    and done with a broad smile....o
    BTW, it is not a photo but a painting done in Corel Painter.
    in a (closed) Painter forum. Thanks for the compliment:)

    But Fred, I have never seen News Groups displaying Rich Text.
    And I am using Rich Text since early September 1903.
    With Rich Text, fonts sizes can be varied and sentences can be
    underlined, which I would sometimes love to do, but here it keep on
    being plain text.

    You are welcome, Gummo.
    Why don't you explain from what and how you posted the message
    that caused the commotion?

    I've seen Dave's work before. He's a very accomplished photo painter.
    I think he works in Corel's program. His stuff is much, much more
    than rendering a photo into a painting-like result by using Photoshop
    filters.
