I would like to create a font using someone's handwriting and am looking for a good software with which to do this. I'm not an expert in this, so it would have to have a small learning curve, unless it is really worth it for me to spend time learning so I can get reasonable results. [more inside]

I'm looking for either a font that simulates the logo of the CRUNK!!! energy drink, or a way to fiddle with an existing font in such a way as to emulate it. For reference here
is the logo. It'd need the whole alphabet, but punctuation and lower case isn't required.

Here's the deal: I've exhausted my neurons looking for some kind of answer to a mathematical symbol
stumper. I'd love to know who invented, originated, or was the first individual to use the double-tilde
(≈) as a means of expressing/denoting "approximately equal" in mathematics. I know that Robert-Recorde
is supposed to have introduced the "equals" sign (=) in 1557. Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated. I await enlightenment.

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 need to make a web page that has 12 different languages, on one page (inc. some right-to-left languages). It's links to customer guides (PDFs) in the different languages - and rather than list them in English (Arabic, bengali, Hindi, Punjabi..) I'd like each language name to be written itn its own script. Can anyone point me to a list of langauge names as text not images, and give me a heads-up on the HTML code required?

Whilst whittling away on a book within the confines of InDesign, I've come upon a question which is purely subjective in nature: If I wish to present this tome in as nice a fashion as possible, which font should I set the text in? I am looking for a beautiful serif, one which harkens back to the Victorian era, yet is easily readable in a smallish size (12pt).
In other words, friends, what is your favorite serif font? [more inside]
