|TrueType fonts don't look like that!?
||Not before Wow'em! The Wow'em installer
disk installs a small system extension program onto your hard disk.
The system extension is automatically loaded whenever you start
Wow'em fonts are TrueType™
fonts with 3 added sections which contain data that describes
the color elements in the font. Normal TrueType rasterizers ignore
those sections, but the Wow'em extension intercepts and processes
requests involving fonts that have those 3 special sections.
Since Wow'em fonts are TrueType
fonts, they're compatible with existing font installers, managers,
|What if the Wow'em extension is not
||Wow'em fonts are TrueType™
fonts. They are compatible with all standard TrueType software;
non-Wow'em rasterizers will display a black-only "standin"
alphabet that approximates the appearance of the color text.
|And Wow'em is compatible with all
||Almost. Except for applications that
do their own special effects on type (e.g. WordArt™), but
you don't need to apply additional effects to Wow'em fonts anyway.
The other exception are applications that create bitmapped files
(e.g. PhotoShop™, PhotoDeluxe™, some web page software).
We're working on a PhotoShop plug-in to solve that problem.
|Does each Wow'em font always display
in the same colors?
||Some fonts always display the same
color scheme. WowSolidGold always looks like gold. Other fonts have
several color schemes built into them. When appropriate, you can
select a different solid color using your application's font-color
menu - the color scheme that looks most like the selected color
|Can I print Wow'em fonts?
||Beautifully! Wow'em fonts are fully scalable, so
they make use of your printer's full resolution. You'll look just
as great on small business cards, or on huge mosaic posters.
|What are the system requirements?
Windows 95, 98, Me, on a Pentium II™
MacOS 8.x or 9.x on an iMac, G3 or G4.
|How many Wow'em font designs are
||As of May 2002, about 75. That number is increasing
