    serif font

    Does anyone know where I can get a free serif pixel font, a bit like Georgia or Bell? I have already tried orgdot, FFF, dafont
    Or if anyone has one, can you upload it here?
    Thanks in advance

    serif's pixel fonts are tough calls.

    The main thing being a serif font is charaterisd by relief
    Relief means adding points. Once a font has relief points added
    it can't maintain the size/sharpness then the fonts appear jagged.

    Arial is actually niether here nor there. Some of the characters but
    not all have relief.

    Arial11_for_flash works well for me.

    As an alternative you could just use a device font.

    There are two at http://www.orgdot.com/aliasfonts/ that I like - serif_v01 and Teacher's Pet (there is also a sans serif version of this one). If you would like to see them in action look at http://www.wellesley.edu/Chemistry/F...onttest4b.html and click on the name of the font you wish to see.

    Cheers,
