comment Are there any free tools to convert .eot files to .ttf, .otf or any other font formats?
Were you able to convert an EOT file to anything else? I tried and was unable to do so.

Papyrus, as well. It really bummed me out when Avatar used it for subtitles - you spend hundreds of millions of dollars on a movie and you go with a MS default font that is supposed to evoke ancient Egyptian papyri?

@dumbledad - You're probably not the type to make angry comments about font choices on YouTube, either :) I really do think that a lot of Comic Sans hate is bandwagon hate...I think the same thing happened with stuff like disco, and Nickelback. A third case could be made that how a designer feels about someone using Comic Sans is analogous to how a gourmet chef feels about someone going to McDonald's for a hamburger.

comment Looking for a nice, condensed, but readable font
Readability isn't primarily opinion-based - Helvetica has been known to struggle on the screen at smaller sizes. Some choices (like a typeface designed for the screen instead of print) will be objectively better.

@Ilan - Interesting find! Both are designed by Adrian Frutiger and look almost identical! Do you know where they differ?

comment What font is used in this address?
@Ilan I'm guessing the lack of a perfect match is due to extra ink in the tight corners. Could be wrong though...I'd be interested to see a closer match if there is one!
