FONTS MISSION
Below is a warning from your Mission Supervisor. To view the
same message in another code, follow these directions.

    1.     Select the message in the box by clicking the
          cursor at the beginning of the first word and
          dragging across and down to the last word.
    2.    Choose FONT from the menu and drag down to a
          code font (one that doesn’t look like English!)

Beware of strange fonts! The Jokerman font is from Pluto and is
famous for silly tricks on people. The Batang font is a bully, and
the Tahoma font will run away with all your stuff.



Now decode the next part of your mission by changing the
font of the message below to an English font.

     Life in space is exciting. I saw a big alien yesterday. He was very
ugly. He had little green eyes and long fingers. He had a square head!
Although he was ugly, he was very nice. This is not always the case.
The aliens on Toragon are very bad! They have sharp teeth and mist
comes out of their nose when they breathe. I am afraid of the
Toragonians! I will be home soon.
