Something I noticed, I have script.fon in the font directory. From the info i have found this is a protected file and shouldn't be removed. No problem.

I looked at it and it seemed like a good font to use for a signature in a document. However when i go to select the font in Word, it's not in the list.

I don't really know much about fonts. I know .fon is a bitmap font. That's about it.

Why wouldn't I be able to use this font in MS Word?

Word will not use fonts with the .fon extension or at least the latest Word versions. You'll probably have to acquire a True Type or Open Type script font if you want script. I think the *.fon fonts are kinda outdated. Script.fon is a very old system/screen font that dates back at least to the days of Windows 3.x. It's not meant as a scalable font to be used in your documents and is bitty, jagged and faint. I wouldn't use it.

You are certainly welcome. There are so many new and better script fonts out there. Might take a look at CoffeeCup's Free Fonts (3 pages).
