You can download the My School Font PG font to try it out but if you want to use it in your school, you need to get a registered copy (only UKP 15.00).

CutOut PG TrueType Font Anyone can use the Elementary font to create templates to cut around but this font lets you generate output that looks as though it has been cut out.

GasPlasma PG TrueType Font This should take the tedium out of generating Gas Plasma Display images. To make it look as though it is emitting light, use a central drop shadow the same colour as the font.

This font makes convincing handwritten mail. It was written using a Ball Pentel Fine Point R50 and reproduces nicely at 20 to 48 point. It will go larger or smaller but unless your handwriting is the same size, it will not convince anyone. For those of you who are writing for jobs where people are employed to analyse handwriting and are thinking of "borrowing" my personality, remember that the letters remain the same shape throughout the document (although you could use a DTP to warp the lines and height of the script :-)

My School Font PG TrueType Font Primary schools (k-6) in the UK have their own sets of rules for writing, for example, how to write a "z" or a "b". These vary from school to school and the default fonts fail to deliver for the busy teacher needing to prepare work for worksheets or display. So, the only solutions are: to spend extra time, painstakingly preparing display work or worksheets (on top of everything else); to compromise the school's work by using fonts with incorrect letter forms; or, have a custom built font. If you are interested in making life easier for your teachers, Click Here to see about having a Custom School Font made for your school (UK Only).

TypeWriter PG TrueType Font This font is based upon a real typewriter, looking more like hand typed copy than the computer fonts allow. Unlike a lot of computer typewriter fonts, this one is legible and has only the characters that are on a typrwriter (ie no braces { or }) so no cheating.

WaterRocket PG TrueType Font Drawing bottles on image processing software to illustrate diagrams is always a pain, having to re-size and redraw manually. I finally got around to making this font so that people (as well as me) could make diagrams easily for web pages, school projects and so on. To re-size, just alter the point size, to change the colour, change the colour of your font. To make the lines thicker if you are doing small diagrams, make it Bold. The anti-alias on image processing software will do all of the hard work for you in getting curves to look curved. Use the Character Map program to see where the particular images are. Currently, they go from A (uppercase) to V (uppercase) but I am expanding this as I get the opportunity. For those who need to know if they have the latest version, I last updated this font on 8th July 2000

Installing . . .

This is what I do on my machine (Win95 b with IE additions).

To install a font, all you need to do is copy it to the Windows\Fonts subdirectory. If you want to uninstall it, just move the font to another subdirectory (I created one called "FontUn" and move them to there) where you can delete them.

To update a font (I intend to update the Water Rocket Font to include more bottle forms) you need to uninstall it, leave it for about 20 seconds while the system sorts itself out and then install the new one.

Better than all of this, and more likely to be a compatible procedure with a wider range of machines, is to use a font manager program that does it all for you.
