I'm sure I've seen a tool somewhere for identifying fonts and font sizes on any web site. It allows you to drag your cursor over the font .... and immediately see what font and size they are using. I thought it was "webdeveloper" but obviously not. Can anyone hep??

Can you not look in the source code and see what fonts are assigned to the text? I'd suggest it will only be one of five or six unless the text is in an image....in which case you have had it.

I've found this really useful

save a"snip" of a screen with the text in it and upload the file!

Well, I'll be. Is there anything left on the web that someone hasn't thought of?
