    Not bad, I prefer Black Chancery but that's not offered here.

    Or is it?

    Is that BlackChancery?

    The Segoe Script and Segoe Print I used were not listed either.

    The FONT tag utilizes the fonts on the viewer's system. No fonts are installed on VB (or PhpBB or any other board)

    So if you have Black Chancery installed on your system, and type
    Code:
    [font="black chancery"]This is black chancery.[/font]
    It should show you (and anyone else with black chancery installed) that sentence in black chancery: This is black chancery.

    If you don't have black chancery installed (or whatever font is listed in the FONT tag), you'll get the default font for your browser.

    The fonts in the dropdown listing are some of the more common Windows fonts.

    So it sounds like this is more a test of my own computer, but what do others see when I do the following?

    abcdefg ABCDEFG

    never mind, couldn't find any of the fancy scripts or Greek symbols that would show up.

    Interesting, thank you. I wasn't aware that could be done. I assume if that font isn't on another users machine it reverts back to the default?

    Correct.

    Also note that the "default" may be different than what the web page (or board page) uses as a standard font, so while the font in the tag may not be present, it might still show up as "different" (see the screenshot of your post above for an example)
