    How to download fonts?

    I want to know how can I download or install more fonts to use in flash. I dont have alot of experience using Flash or any web design software. Im working on my first personal site and i just bought the studio mx combo, but Flash doesnt have many choices in terms of fonts. I want to be able to use diferent types of fonts, How can i do that?

    theres thousands of free fonts out there I go to http://www.dafont.com or http://www.abstractfonts.com for all my fonts. Go to one of those and download them and unzip them into a folder and remember the folder you unzip them in, then type C:\WIndows\Fonts in your IE browser bar and then go to File>Install New Font. Thats the XP way for me.

    cheers

    thank you, thank you, but as usual i seem to have hit a problem...i did what you said, and installed the font just fine but when I am in flash and type with the font it looks nothing like the font preview i saw on the free site. looks like plain old arial type or something...weird.
