Hehe :wink:

I used the font of "Biao Kai Ti" 標楷體;, I think we use the same one except that mine is a bit smoother.
Is that because you did yours with Paint Brush?

I typed it up on NJStar WP, copied it to MS Word, took a screenshot, cropped it and saved it into .gif format. So I'm not too sure whether it's supposed to be smoother, haha.

Can't remember the name of my font though...

Where can you get the fonts?

I wanna get the style written in the Qin Dynasty (the one Qin Shi Huangdi created when he merged all the writing together), the early Han one (really bolded) and late Han/3 kingdoms type (the type I write out and scan but my paper sux soooo, it smudges)

Well if you have Chinese Windows then it comes within.
(I mean for the "normal" one)

If you want other kind of special fonts like Seal script, Clerical script... you could buy the software for that. Or if you are lucky you could find them online for download.

haha, it took me weeks...even months...to hunt down those b***** hanzi bitmap fonts. But it was worth it eventually. :D

If you want, I can send you some links to some good hanzi font sites.

Thank you.

There used to be a website, long time ago, with all kind of special calligraphy fonts (running scrip, clerical script...) for downloads...however the site is not working anymore...
