Is it just me of is the Agfa Monotype site completely sucky on the Mac? Lousy interface not withstanding.
Yeah. Impact. Eeww. (Impact is a free font too, available from Microsoft. Is it an Agfa font? Double eww).
Yeah, the AGFA site sucks hard. But the press release says they're re-designing it, so let's hope they rise to the occasion. I wonder who the domain belonged to before, and how much they paid for it. Since dot-com-land was covered with dot-bombs, squatters have been selling off domains for really cheap. But if a company is spending good money on getting a good domain, that's a good sign for the font business. hhp

No, it's not just you, Karen. The site is horrid. It's a disservice to the designers whose fonts they sell. And to think that they snagged the "fonts.com" domain for their sorry showing. (Is that logo in Impact? Eeek.)
