Any thoughts from TTG?

several solutions. One is to delete both vgaoem.fon and
dosapp.fon from the
\windows\fonts directory.  This is easier said than done--you
need to go into command-line mode, use attrib to get ride of the
hidden and system attributes, and then delect them or move them
to another directory. But beware: if you then try to boot in
640x480 vga mode, you get a message "must reload windows" without

The other way is to leave vgaoem.fon alone, but use the registry
editor, search for all items containing "oem.fon", delete every
one of them, and then reboot. That seems to work as well.

By the way, I use netscape 2.0b but I don't know how to join the
xywrite list. Can you tell me? Thanks
