        OK, but only as a rough guide. Before I buy a font -- an expen-
        sive one, not a 15$ decorative or grunge thing -- I'd like to see
        it printed. The effects can be so different, it is necessary.
        Unless I'd mainly want to use it online, of course, a rapidly
        growing field for typographers.
