:-) For anyone who wants to play about with font-colours, the system recognises many more than are on the drop-down list of the colour-icon.

For example... lightcoral crimson hotpink deeppink mediumvioletred fuchsia mediumorchid mediumpurple darkviolet purple mediumslateblue greenyellow lime mediumspringgreen mediumseagreen lightseagreen aquamarine darkturquoise skyblue deepskyblue dodgerblue ...and many more...

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_colors for inspiration.

I have played about with a few extra text-fonts too (no time to do much)... Brush Script MT Cursive Fantasy Monaco
...alas no Old Dreadful No. 7...


A change of lipstick is in order, I think! (-:

Love It!

Thank you Anne!!

(OK, I know that I haven't done much with color and alternative fonts here--but as a designer, I'm always on the verge of doing so! ;-)

:-) Glad you enjoy! I've been reading a bit more about fonts. The best I can make of it in my not-too-techy head is that not all pcs/macs will support display of all fonts. There are explanatory pages online about this, e.g http://www.angelfire.com/fl5/html-tutorial/fontlist.htm -- only a few of these fonts display on my MacBook. (-:
