fetchmsttfonts is a suse script to download ms fonts like arial and
verdana from a microsoft server ..
A lot of msword docs are formatted with that fonts. btw the fonts looks
much better in OpenOffice.

Right. I have already used fetchmsttfonts, and have those installed. Now MOST programs under KDE look really, really nice. But Star Office doesn't see them. When the guy said he was trying to hack SO to see them , and someone suggested fetchmsttfonts, I thought that maybe that would fix the problem in SO. But you say OO is better - does 8.0 come with OO? It only lists SO56.2, which I already have, on the box.

Thanks in advance,
