Yep, I've noticed this too. I think I have found a reasonable fix to this.
I will try to get it in a uploaded in the next week or so.

This is what I've been doing too.

1. font3d, Win95 and true type fonts.

: I am running Win95. I donwloaded font3d v1.51 and tried to find some
: true type fonts to convert.  I was very suprised to not find *any*
: *.ttf files on my system at all. I ended up going back to my Windows
: 3.1 install disks and copying the *.tt_ files off and expanding them.
: Is this the best solution?  Does ttf exist under Win95? Where?

: Jeff Fox


Yes, Win95 definitely supports TrueType fonts.  You should be able to find
them in the c:\windows\fonts directory.  Give that a try.
