Any idea what the *.fon files are in XP's font directory? They come
up as executables in Konqueror.

TTF files are executables too. FON files are Windows bitmap fonts.

No, they are not executable.

TTF files include programs (sets of instructions) that generate glyphs and
hinting, thus are executable. That you cannot run them from a shell prompt
doesn't change that character.
