Jens: I appreciate your insights, and have a few clarifying questions to ask. I use Windows 2000, which uses TrueType (.TTF) font files. When Mathematica 5.0 was installed, it provided 7 new TrueType fonts, each using one proportional TTF file, and one monospaced TTF file. I have not checked every font thoroughly, so I have this question ... Are all the Mathematica palette symbols input only in this fashion? It looks like I need to check-out the FontoGrapher website. I assume FontoGrapher is a commercial product. Are there any equivalent shareware or freeware Windows tools available for building user-drawn TTF files? It also looks like I need to run an experiment with one of my other Windows fonts -- maybe StarTrek or Klingon -- to determine the steps needed to convert parts of a Windows TTF file into a Mathematica Palette. Is any other Mathematica poster experienced in this? Thanks. Harold
