GROENING is a font widely available on the net that nicely emulates
the handwriting of Matt Groening, the creator of "The Simpsons" and
the comic "Life in Hell". Unfortunately, the font only contains the
capital letters A - Z and the digits 0 - 9. No lower case letters, no period,
no comma, no ampersand, no punctuation whatsoever. I took this font and added
Groening-esque lower case, punctuation, and many other characters. Because I
wanted this font to appear near the top of my alphabetically arranged font list,
I renamed it AKBAR. If you download this font,
I like getting compliments.
