Leigh-ann kindly emailed instructions for loading fonts onto Windows XP. We have added instructions for installing the Mac fonts into her email. Thanks Leigh-ann.

We received an email from Matthew with an attached zip file of "dotted thirds" as watermarks. You can read what Matthew said, and download this file if you like. Then Jeni emailed us to say, "I'm interested in being able to type words and have the box shape come up for children to recognize the shape of the word." Jeni's suggestion was followed a couple of days later with a new font called "Letter Boxes". Thanks Jeni.

School Fonts is not, and cannot legally be registered for GST with the Australian Tax Office, therefore GST is not payable when you purchase these fonts.
