Converting .FON files

Post by pavalentine » Tue Jan 31, 2006 4:46 pm


I have an older application which runs fine under Windows 98 but the fonts are not being properly displayed under Windows XP. I suspect it is because the application uses the older older bitmapped .FON files.

What is the best way to convert these files to newer formats which will (hopefully) display properly under Windows XP, etc.

I don't think I'm able to help you, but you might want to give some more information. For example, what .FON file are we talking about, are specific characters not properly displayed, etc?

You might also want to post your question in this font newsgroup:
