I want to read a book set in blackletter. Not just for titles 8212; I want blackletter for the text. Unfortunately I don't read German, nor a Northern European language, and I want to really read
it, not just look at it, so it has to be a book written in English or French. I'd prefer a book from the past two centuries.

Is there any way on the mac to change the color of a font through a keyboard shortcut? If there isn't a built-in way is there a way to hack it so that you could?

Like most of you, I do a lot of reading online, but notice that some websites default the font size to a teeny, weeny size. I'd like to read these sites at a larger font size, but when I change the default in FF, from say 16 to 18, some pages don't display optimally (text is cut off by images, I need to scroll right to read, etc.)
I believe GreaseMonkey can fix this so that the pages will read better at a larger size, but that's just a guess and I'm not sure how to use it. Any tutorials out there?

I am trying to determine if a Truetype font called "Angelina
" is really a free/freeware font, or if it's just been stolen from somewhere else. Any advice? [more inside]

A friend is looking for a free (or really cheap) downloadable font to create a monogram for her wedding invitations consisting of the bride and groom's first initials and an ampersand (ie N&V). Any tips for a scripty, engrave-y, calligraphy-y, weddingy type font with lots of flourishes? Is it a monogram if it's for two people? I have no idea.

Please help me GLOBALLY DISABLE font smoothing (anti-aliasing) in Tiger. I did it almost-completely in Panther, but the Panther solution needs another step in Tiger.

I have dual monitors (one large CRT and one small laptop screen.) Is it possible to get separate DPIs on each monitor, or at the very least display different font sizes by default on each monitor in Win XP Pro?

Is there any way to reduce the font size used by my Palm OS device? Palm OS provides four font-size options for its system apps, but the smallest of these four is still much bigger than my ideal size.
