    If someone is interested: The commercial font for Burton's nightmare seems to be (a modified?) P22 Victorian Swash.

    Swallow - they knew that back in 2002 - when they were pricing it... (see Ellen's response, two up from yours...)

    Meanwhile, I wonder if they problem back in 2002 was they weren't un"zipping" or un"stuffing" the font... LOL

    Oh, yes, I see. Thank you Jackie. And I'm sure they tried to install a zip-file as a TTF-font. :-D

    And there you see, and old thread has it's uses:
    The problem with Burton's Nightmare and the likes is that in the metrics the unique font identifier is not included. Up till Win98 Windows Font Viewer ignored that and opened the font. As from Win2000 this changed.
    The solution is simple: give the font a unique identifier - normally the type name or the typeface name and ... Bingo!
