#### What font goes well with Bernhard Modern?

I am doing a brochure using Bernhard Modern as a headline font and
looking for a suitable font to use for the body copy underneath. Could
be serif or sans-serif.
Someone suggested using Caslon but I'm not sure if that really does it
for me....

Perhaps Caledonia or New Caledonia (Transitional 511 BT).

With Bernhard Modern I'd suggest something simple like Myriad. Sans serif may look too different.

Choice of a typeface (not font) depend on basic layout, images, colors, etc. so your question is like "I'll make dinner on blue plates which wine should I choose." ;-)

Last time I looked at Myriad it was a sans-serif font ;-)

LOL - I agree. Not to forget: content. It could be a menu for an elegant
restaurant or a brochure for a senior citizens' residence or ...

Anyway, with the large ascenders of B.M. you should make use of=20
generous linespacing with the body text as well. Whatever font or=20
typeface :-) you chose for that.

Font Book
I am running OS X 10.4.2 server and trying to utilize the nework font feature within Font Book. I setup the shared library on the server and the needed Fonts folder which is mounting to the client correctly under /Network/Library/Fonts but within Font Book the Network is listed but as "Off" and no matter what I do it will not enable. Any thoughts would be great...

pdf995 and embedded fonts

How to see font map?
For developing my font conversion program, I need to know which ascii code (0-255) is giving which character of that font. I define the code in a column of MS excel XP worksheet, and in next column I set =char(code), and set the font of this column to my trial font. Now, indic characters are having ligatures which go before, after, above, below the actual letter, thus, sometime the ligature goes beyond the visible limit of excel cell, thus I am not able to see it. I need to add space etc before/ after the letter, but that creates different problems. Could someone please suggest some simple...

Hey DFS...Ask Kohlmann to explain this one (was fonts...)
Over here he accuses you of rigging the screenshots by turning of anti-aliasing: http://groups.google.com/group/comp.os.linux.advocacy/msg/82e012c465a663cf "You mean, you deliberately selected different fonts/fontsizes?

fonts funny
When I tried to load NetSurf 2.1 the other day I got an error about Unicode (and no application - had to revert to 2.0 temporarily). John-Mark Bell identified the fault as a corrupt font file (Sassoon). I found the original file and replaced the corrupt one, and all is well with Netsurf. The font in question was one of a set distributed along with a much earlier version of NetSurf (September 2006). It came with several others, including 'small caps' fonts (but no others) for the Acorn standards: Corpus, Homerton and Trinity. When I replaced Sassoon I added all the others to !F...

where are the fonts ?
I am running Thunderbird 1.5 (Tb) on Fedora Core 4. When I open an html message in Tb, it (apparently) defaults to the default font. I am not even certain what the default is. The exception is arial. If I set the font to arial <font face=arial> Then it looks like arial. I can guess that html cannot find other fonts and defaults to something. I am not sure what something is. But when I search my HDD, I find lots of other fonts. So I am guessing that html cannot find them. So my questions: 1.Is there a way to tell what fonts I have that are accessible to html?

I have a router that locks up intermitantly. I need to be paged when this happens. Ping blocked across our wan to this router and is not an option. I have MRTG tracking interfaces and cpu. Can I use cpu% and mrtg thresholds to call a paging script if I set unknaszero? When the router goes down, the CPU% would drop to zero. Or does MRTG need real data to cross the threshold and not unknaszero data? Has anyone done this? I have not used thresholds on mrtg and am fuzzy re. them. Thanks, Mark ...
