    first of all thanks a lot to everybody, who wrote back to my questions
    till this time.

    Now I am reading the IFIMETRICS structure to calculate the fontsize. All
    works fine. But I meed to know the fontfamily and later the font glyphs
    (as bitmaps) to. Reading the DDK helpfile to IFIMETRICS I found out that
    the font family can be accessed by taking the assress of IFIMETRICS and
    adding "dpwszFamilyName" bytes. I tried to do this, but could not take a
    name like (Arial or Times Roman). Can you give me an idea.

    By the way, is there an other documentation then the DDK help file for
    such problems. Would be nice to know about.

    Thanks, and best regards.
