I don't see significant differences between Times New Roman and Times Roman. Then again, I personally don't care for regular Times Roman so I tend to agree with you.

At work, I am using Linux and let me tell you. Windows font rendering engine and its assortment of fonts are fantastic in comparison.

Everything seems to default to Lucida Grande on the Mac anyway?

Only in MS Word...arial seems fine in Adobe apps on Windows

I don't think the font foundries would ever accept that. A proliferation of font scraper software would be the inevitable result. The mere loading of a page would give a visitor a local copy of the font that could be teased out of the cache (conceptually). Browser plugins would negate any sort of encryption for font DRM.

I think it's funny. Microsoft refused to pay the type foundries the right to use their fonts (font designs are not trademarked, but rather their names are) when they first started. Apple on the other hand did, paying for the use of Helvetica and Times for example. Just a small example of the differences in these two companies. Now we have Apple having to pay twice - one fee for the original designs and another fee to Microsoft for their cheap knockoffs of the originals. Classic.

GET INFO on a movie clip (not TV) results in nothing. It only works if I select multiple clips.


Is this for iTunes movies?

Works for movies that I have imported but obviously I don't have access to iTunes movies, being from the UK!

I don't have access to the iTunes movies either, being from Canada. I meant the "movies" section on iTunes, under Library.

Wow, didn't realise Arial and Verdana were almost identical...I'm gonna ditch Arial, TNR and Verdana now that I know they're evil! I can't see why Apple really needs them if there are equivalent fonts with the same shape/spacing that can be used instead.
