7/28/2000 1:00:00 PM - New site design

We are proud to unveil our new site design. Our new site was developed and hand-coded by Bryan while he was working on FontReview 2.6. The site is powered on the backend using Active Server Pages. The client end is pure HTML 4.0. It does take advantage of many HTML 4.0-specific tags, so it does not look best with Netscape 4.x or AOL browsers. Sorry. (Netscape needs to get its act together.)

Internet Explorer or Opera is highly recommended.

We have also posted information about a new product, FontReview 2.6. FontReview is an update of a product that we used to sell for Windows 3.1. It is been freshened up and improved for the Windows 95/98/NT/2000 platforms. Visit the FontReview product page for more information.

We found a small bug in Printer's Apprentice 7.11. If the Arial font is not installed on your system, PA will fail to start with a "General Protection Fault in module <unknown>" error message. We have isolated and fixed this bug. A fix for this will be coming soon. Until then, the work around is to simply install the Arial font from your Windows CDs.
