I discovered the Springbats and Mugshots fonts while searching
the Net for references to my own Akbar Font. Since
both of these fonts used only a small portion of the available character set,
I decided to combine them into one larger font, while throwing in a few new
characters of my own. I call the result "Springbats Deluxe." If you
download this font,
I like getting compliments.

Open Control Panel. Open the Fonts applet. From the "File" drop down menu,
select "Install New Font..." Navigate to the folder in which you extracted
"akbar.ttf", select it and click "OK." Please be sure
to read the "README " file.

that the "Copy Fonts to Windows Directory" box is not checked.
Choose "close"and then choose "close". You may have to
restart Windows before the font will work. Please be sure to read the "README
