    actually i dont want meta anymore.. sorry... i need this font for a printed magazine and meta has jumping numbers... ie they are not vertically aligned to th ebaseline... they "jump".. so that fonts is no good for a magzine.

    here is a sample of the font i am looking for, taken from "Stuff" magazine

    do ou know what it is?

    good choice ! ;)

    i should've told you that i have tried both Trebuchet and Officina which are very similar to the font i am looking for but not exactly... both trebuchet and officina are heavier when you print a lot of text.

    look at the 'i's for example. Treubchet's got a little serify thing at the top below the dot which the font i am looking for doesnt. Overall you add up all of those little things and the font gets cleaner and nicer. Also, i'd like a font that is a tiny little bit lighter...

    i know, i know ;) i am anal... but thats the way the publishing business works... ;)

    thanks a million for trying to help me Thorn!

    you were talking about that font meta. I would like to know if anyone have meta plus or FF Meta to share with me. That is a very nice semi serif font and it is unveliebable expensive. I used to have it and others very beautiful fonts in a special fonts CD that i kept like a treasure, but unfortunately i lost it in a recent moving. If somebody wants to share this font or others like syntax, rotis, thesans, etc. I would be really grateful and stil have other fonts to share with you.
    Thanks a lot, in advance.

    Alex,

    I'm having a slight problem understanding this forum. It seems it was okay for you in the first request to ask for commerical fonts to be given to you. Claudia (two up) has made the same request for the same font - and yet, your rules are different for her - yet you ask her to understand.

    Alex where I come from - commercial fonts are only available one way - you pay for them. The end.

    you are absolutely right. but if you noticed, the posts are from 2003. i guess i did not know right from wrong then.
