It means the package has 3 fonts in it. Broadway, a very TALL THIN roman
font and a hairline avant-garde'ish looking font.

I searched all over and cant find the stupid package and I'm pretty
sure I just threw it out in the big clean. Try SF information (415)555-1212.
I found the packageat a B. Dalton bookstore. Your dealer should be able
to get them for you. They're listed intghe Southern Technologies catalog
(which is one of three distributors Amiga dealers buy their stuff from)
