Graham, There are quite a few shareware and freeware font browsing programs. I suggest going to some of the main shareware sites (sorry, can't help you on url's at the moment) and search for what you need. Back in the Win3.1 days, I had one that could look through a whole directory (I don't recall that they had to be "installed") and print out a big book of sample sheets, etc. It was great -- I just don't remember the name of it.
