    You can try out the fonts. Type in that box and pick the font you want. If you know how to do the alt+PrtSc button and the paint program, you can make your own handwriting pages that way and if it isn't big enough, you can enlarge it on the copier.

    Here's a dumb question... once you download a font, how do you add it & get it to work in Word?

    This isn't a dumb question at all. It isn't hard, but it takes several steps.

    1. Unzip the download, if necessary. Put the files on your desktop -- this will make the next step easier.

    2. (If you are on a PC with Windows) Go to the start button (lower left hand side.) Go to control panel, and select "fonts". Now copy the fonts from your desktop to this file.

    Now they are installed, and your Word program will have them as a font choice.

    (After you have checked it out, and it works, you can delete the files from the desktop.)

    Enjoy!
