    Printing Letters/Characters Fonts

    To the attention of Frank E. Reed

    Dear Frank,

    I regular print NavList Posts through "right click" on the post text itself + "Print".

    I also often copy-paste some parts of these Posts and file them as Word Documents with other information, such as personal notes ... "Und so Weiter" ...

    I would like my own personal Word documents of this kind to look exactly like the NavList pages directly printed from the Internet. I have not been able yet to closely match your letters/characters size and presentation as well as interval between successive lines (Lines spacing ?) too.

    The closest I have been able to achieve is through using the "Times New Roman" Font with size " 8 ", but it does not perfectly match the font which you are actually using.

    Which Font, Size and Lines spacing are you actually using for the Web pages display then ?


    And also ... (this one would be a cherry on the cake, I know) when I print a page directly from a NavList post accessed from the Internet, the left side of the printed lines is (too) close from the left side of the paper sheet. When I punch holes in the left sides of my printed documents for further filing into folders, it sometimes happens that some interesting data (essentially numbers) also get "punched out". Any possible fine tuning here ? An extra 1 cm line shift to the right would be perfect.

    Thank you very much for your Kind Attention, and upcoming reply.

    Best Regards from


    Antoine M. "Kermit" Couëtte
