More and more web pages are using TrueType fonts. Like it or not, they
do look a lot better when the proper fonts are used. Fortunately,
there is nice TrueType support for X available with xfsft, which can
be found at .

I have been using the xfsft patches with the X server for a few
months, and haven't had any problems.


% netscape :-)


Install xfsft as described above.
