use-revolution Digest, Vol 3, Issue 115

I was using shell on Linux (RedHat 9) to copy files and open a URL location
using MetaCard 2.4.3 (I am using 2.5 right now). I will check the next time
I am on that computer  ;-)

I am looking for a fix to the font issues with ANY version of MetaCard on
Linux...only 'some' fonts will work  :-(
