    So I found these Transformers fonts at http://www.physics.ohio-state.edu/~sstoneb/tf/fonts/, but how do I get them to my computer so I can use them? I run the 2002 version of Windows XP, and do most of my word processing in WordPerfect. I know it's probably really easy, but I'm pretty tech stupid. Any help would be appreciated!

    Assuming you have Windows XP, highlight all the .ttf files you want and select COPY. Then, navigate to C:\WINDOWS\FONTS and select paste.

    Remember, though, if you email someone using those FONTS, they will only show up if that person has the same FONTS installed.

    Enjoy!

    Once you've installed the fonts they should show up in pretty much any program you use.

    Yeah, WP for Windows. I get as far as pasting the files in C:\WINDOWS\FONTS, but the font doesn't show up in WordPerfect. Sorry, I'm dumb.....

    Try downloading Openoffice if you can't get WP to work. I use OO all the time, it is free and open source, and its fully functional.

    Hmm. Try this.
    Go to your Control Panel, and open Fonts. Click on "Install new font" in the file menu, and navigate to the place you have the fonts saved to on youd hard drive (not the actual fonts folder). Once it's retrieved the font names, click "select all", then OK.
    After you've done that, open Wordperfect and see if they show up.
