Hi,

Please don't be annoyed with me for bringing this up after all I put you through on the font sizes (I've learned a lot!), but I've realized in having some people I know visit the site <<http://www.bavariagen.com>> that they aren't seeing my Kunstler Script at all like I can (I thought it was a standard font most people would get, but no), and it is defaulting to Arial for them as the fourth font choice I listed in the html (one who *could* see the KS even complained that it didn't look "German" enough to him <grin>)

There is a Bavarian font that I like called "Schwaben Alt", but I know practically no one will get that in their browsers (including me). So, I would like to make just the 11 letters that I use on the page (B-a-v-r-i-G-e-m-n-y-W) into a gif or jpg image(s) so I know *everyone* will see those letters in Schwaben Alt when they visit the website (the rest of the page I've done in Arial and have no problem with that).

I have already found a website to download the font for free (and have done so), but I don't know how to go about doing what I am thinking of. Would I need some kind of special graphics program to do it with? Right now I have Corel Print and Photo House and MS Paint and Photo Editor.

Thanks for your time, attention and patient guidance!
Joanne

most any paint program that will allow of text will do. i use paint shop pro 7(aka PSP7) for its ease of use, or so i think its easy. i went ahead and made you some images, since i already have that font file. their links are below. but remember, on the "w" add this code to the <img.. command

align="absbottom"

that way the text will align with the bottom of the image.
your image links are: bavger.gif - w.gif
please remember to save the files to your computer and upload them to your server. both of the images have transparent background with a white casting (meaning the original background was white so it will blend in better with your image background, which is base on light colors)
