I don't have 4.0, but a few things that did work. I installed cfs (Caldera
Font Server). I think it's still at ftp.redhat.com. It will serve True Type
fonts and the interface lets you preview and play with sizes etc.
Now, Star writer (if I remember correctly) had 7 or 8 fonts hard coded. They
could not be changed from what I read. Star Draw would allow me to use most
of the fonts. (Some didn't show up, although the previewer didn't have a
problem). So, if you're only looking to add a snazzy title, you can create it
and import it into a star writer document. If you're interested in typing the
whole letter in a certain font, Star Draw is a little awkward.
