Gotta love the docs that go with some fonts and ding bats.

    Trophy Points:
    More times than not there are no docs to go along with the dingbat downloads and the font sites will refer you to read the docs enclosed

    Here are a few actual docs I came across today.

    Conditions of use as of 10/4/2000
    These conditions override all previous conditions

    This font is Testware, in that you can use it totally free of charge,
    COMMERCIAL AND NON COMMERCIAL, without asking permission.

    This zipfile must be kept intact, without alterations, if being
    transferred via Disk, email, internet, or any other media. It can be
    made available for downloading from website.

    If you like this font, and feel inclined, a small bequest, gratuity or donation of any amount
    you determine to be appropriate to me would be appreciated. This is a suggestion, not a demand,
    and in no way affects permission to use this font. Do not feel obligated to send any money if
    you do not wish to.

    <<<<<<<< CONDITIONS OF USE >>>>>>>>>

    1. This font can be used for personal and commercial use, with the
    understanding that this font was created as a hobby and no claim
    to professionalism is claimed.

    2. It can now be included in any compilation CD's, disks or product.

    3. The zipfile containing the font and this text file must be kept
    intact, without alterations, additions or deletions.

    4. This font can be transferred, stored or made available to other
    computers or on the internet/bulletin board as long as no fee or
    charge is requested for this service.

    5. No warranty is offered, or understood to have been offered by the
    supplier of this font, and the risk of any losses or damage from
    use of this font remain with the user.

    6. The supplier can not be responsible for any problems that may arise
    by misuse of the font.

    7. The term 'Testware' shall be taken and understood to mean that you
    can use the font, without restrictions, in any manner that you wish,
    as long as the user understands that the user is responsible for any
    legal or moral situations that may arise for their use of this font in
    any immoral, racial or illegal way.

    8. You may definitely not eat, chew, sleep with, cook, slice, dice, barter,
    shop, snort, inject, lick or wear this font. Any mental, health or legal
    problems that will arise from attempted use in mentioned fashion are your
    problems. I don't want to know, or hear, about your fetish's. (Well, then
    again, I need a good laugh now and then.)

    Anyway, that's it in total. As stated you can now do as you wish with my fonts, with full
    responsibility upon your broad shoulders, but a kindness would be in letting me know
    where and how you use my fonts, as I like to know someone out there uses them.

    These fonts are postcardware. If you like them, please send
    a pretty postcard to my daughter (she's nine years

    Feel free to distribute these fonts, but please keep
    this text-file with them!

    PS: A note to Win3.1-users: due to the limited
    fonthandling abilities of Win3.1, you may experience
    difficulties with some of the more complex dingbat-
    fonts. I.e you'll get a square on the screen instead
    of a character. This has nothing to do with the font!
    The only solution, I'm afraid, is an upgrade to Win95.

    PPS: many thanks to all the people throughout the
    world who have send us cards, letters, stickers and
    other nice things in return for either this font or
    some of the others!! We regret, that we cannot always
    find the time (or make out the exact adresses!) to
    reply directly. A single post-card is enough to register
    the entire collection!
