comment 1 letter used - do I need to buy the entire font?
Do bear in mind that taking information from a font is creating a derivative work, and in most jurisdictions that is a copyright infringement. It is the case that US copyright law is a law unto itself, though.

comment What exactly is a “Pixel”?
A dot on a screen is a pixel, and screens may be 72ppi, 75ppi, 96ppi or 120ppi or whatever. Those densities depend on the physical size of each light-emitting dot. A screen measuring 1900x1200 will have physical dimensions which relate to the physical dimensions of each light-emitting dot. A dot on a printer may well be 300dpi. Conclusion: there's not much correlation between pixels and inches.

comment Identify these two fonts, on serif one sans-serif
@thebodzio Yes. "Brutally condensed" certainly. But it's TNR. Capsules is almost certainly Helvetica Condensed Bold.

comment Identify these two fonts, on serif one sans-serif
The typefaces are fairly obvious without using identification aids, so it would be really useful to know exactly what you have tried. WhatTheFont and Identifont do usually produce good results.

comment I need suggestions for an 'undelete' icon
I like the "extract from trash" arrow (+1), but the cross means "Can't delete" to me. An unadorned trash-can might be better.

comment Using a copyright image within my design and sell?
Disney owns their version of Winnie the Pooh. Methuen owns the original Shepard drawings and of course, you can draw your own which are bound to be very similar...

comment Best sans serif webfont that display well on Windows and Mac
Web fonts should be fine on both platforms, especially if ClearType is turned on (in Windows). A couple of comparative screenshots would help this question.

And what does it give as the answer to the question? Surely this "answer" is just a comment?

comment Is it possible to have a page with a transparent background?
@jeckyll2hide The solution to this supplementary question is to use a tool which can cope with the requirement. Even Microsoft Publisher will set transparent colours!

@Ican I didn't do a box because you said not to. "Also tried, creating a semi-transparent box around the text. I feel the box one looks out of place." But your site, your call...
