HI! Riardo:
When I had my system adminstrator to install the fonts file, we could not
download it from http://effbot.org/pil/pilfonts.zip, because the webpage
has changed much.  We also tried to find the fonts file on web but failed.
Would you like to tell me other links from which I can download the fonts
file? Or sent the fonts file to me by email, if you'd like.
I really appreciate your help.
