Actually Fonts is a special system folder, with its own special kind of
sneakiness. In the Fonts folder, when I click View, click Hide Variations
(Bold, Italic, etc.) the Status Bar below says: "174 font(s) (plus 115
hidden)". Even with Folder Options set to show hidden and super hidden files
like protected system files, Marlett.ttf is still hidden. In Command Prompt
you can see it with "attrib Marlett.ttf" (with attribute H,) or "dir
Marlett.ttf /a". You can also see Marlett in Character Map. And it shows up
in the Notepad, Format, Fonts list, as well as here in Outlook Express.
Marlett has the special symbols for dialog boxes, like the 3 slash marks in
the bottom right corner of windows, and the triangles when you click a
column header in details view. (And triangles on scroll bar buttons?
