Font Package

Does anyone know of a good font package that comes with a lot of fonts. For now I specifically need a font where all letters are uppercase, but the "lower case" ones are a little smaller but still look uppercase. I can't seem to find one. I would like other fonts also, so if anyone knows of a good font archive I can download that would be great.

If you've got a Windows box laying about, you can copy the fonts -- they're all TTFs. I keep them in /usr/local/share/fonts/MSfonts, and create a file, /etc/fonts/local.conf containing
cat /etc/fonts/local.conf
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- /etc/fonts/local.conf file to configure system font access -->
which makes them available (you probably need to reboot).

Sorry, I can't recall right now what the name of the "upper" font is and I'll dig around and see if I can find it.

If you're using, you can select Format, Character, Font Effects and in the Effects tab, choose Small capitals -- that ought to give you what you want without downloading or copying any fonts.

Hope this helps some.

Thanks, that does help out. I was able to find a Microsoft font, but it is also good to know about the OpenOffice feature. Thanks.
