    I did a search and couldn't immediately find anything.

    All this time I thought Cat typed in Times New Roman, but we're in a voice chat on Skype with Hero, and she said she uses Century Gothic

    It's selectable in the vBulletin editor font dropdown menu, but not in Mozilla Firefox's font setting, so I guess it can't render it?

    Is it possible to download fonts to Mozilla Firefox?

    Do you have Century Gothic installed on your computer?

    I don't see it as an option in Open Office Writer, so I guess not.

    It's included, usually, with Windows, dunno why you wouldn't have it. You'll have to find it somewhere.

    According to this and this, it doesn't look like it comes with Windows.

    Any ideas on where I could downloads fonts? I found a few, but they're not official, so I'm not sure if they're safe or not. Normally, I wouldn't have a problem with it, as AVG *does* detect harmful websites, but I'm not sure how fonts are installed.

    It's a commercial font so in order to get it properly you'll have to pay for it. There are, of course, ways around that, none of which can be discussed on here.

    Eh. It's no big deal. Times New Roman as a substitute is fine.

    You can lock this now, Cassie. :)
