oh, and not all fonts are available, but there's plenty to choose from
if you don't mind changing.  you can find that selection when you
choose 'edit text'.  feel free to email me offline if you need
additional help.  i'm delighted to finally be able to help someone,
usually the questions are way beyond me, and i've gotten so much help
on this listserv.
