Re:WTF are fonts for??

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on December 08, 2004 01:40 AM

OK, so you spent money for some fonts, and then what- no one else is allowed to look at them?? Crikey. The world is getting stranger all the time.


I imagine that the reviewer meant that Pack and Go embeds the fonts in such a way that they can be extracted and reused by other people, rather than simply viewed. In this case, the recipients can use the fonts without paying proper royalties, instead of simply being able to view the fonts in a slideshow.
