    In a cavern, in a canyon,
    Excavating for a mine,
    Dwelt a miner, forty-niner
    And his daughter Clementine.
    Oh my darling, Clementine

    It's a font file format (example: arial.ttf) - True Type Font

    I didn't make the banner, so I'm not sure about the top font, but I do know that the bottom font is called Natzke, and is available at http://www.miniml.com

    As for the top one, I would suggest going to the coffee lounge and asking in this hread what it was Good luck!

    hey i made a font and it looks like my handwriting. it was pretty easy just took a lot of patience. what i did:

    1)download.com search for 'font creater program' yes, thats the actual name of it. look around you'll find it.
    2)i wrote out that one sentence that has all the letters (uhh....The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog) in both caps and lowercase along with 01234 and all the {[ !@#$ and other crap. Then i scanned it in and cut it up into little letters and saved them each as 'a.bmp' or '1.bmp etc. make sure u save em as .bmp.
    3)fire up that font creater prog and bring up the 'a' box. right click it and go to import image and find the corresponding bmp, import it then resize it and what not. i tried to remove some of the excess points to make my letters more simple.
    4)Once that all was done i saved it and installed it. yee haw. now i have my own font.

    hope this helps
    later
