    the geneva font. Can anyone suggest a close facsimile.[/quote:5937d8c65e]

    First I thought this can not be true. But for a whole day nothing happened. Thus, OK, everyone has had the chance to shoot but nobody took it. So here we go.

    You want a facsimile of a clone? Or just any clone? Or the Real Thing?

    The clue is in the name: mother is Helvetica. Clones, amongst many, MANY!!!, others are swiss721 and geneva. Comes in 2 versions, one for PC and one for Mac. Slightly different.The Mac version can be found here http://www.pa.msu.edu/ftp/pub/misc/tek-phaser/ttfonts/
    There is even a clone named bern! How imaginative clone makers are! But the worst of all, if you don't mind the minuscule differences;

    THE ARIAL,

    redrawn for screen - like the Times New Roman - but - like the Times New Roman - unfit for print - to say the least (Kat's humble opinion).
    So search no further. You've got it. Unless, like all of us, you are waiting for the Emmenthaler.
