Fonts gone with XP install

I just freshly installed WinXP and the fonts I've worked with since Win98se are gonzo. I've read the font overview and all that but can't seem to find where I get my fonts back. I think some came with IE6 too but I can't find that either.
Thanks

I looked...They're gone. Missing the advanced fonts that came with IE5.5 I think

Easy to be wise afterwards... Have you a friend who might have the specific fonts you miss most?

It is easily overlooked that all sorts of applications add to the Windows Fonts folder and these remain if the apps are uninstalled...... Then much later the whole lot are lost unless that folder has been saved elsewhere first.

Nope...no backup.
I never dreamed I'd have trouble getting them. Anyone have the advanced fonts to IE5.5 laying around?
Thanks

Obviously you know best what it is that you have lost, and the irritation that comes from older documents which don't display properly without the original font.

On the other hand (said he), it's an opportunity to collect only the fonts you really use and not clutter Windows loading time with a host of stuff you never use.

If you want a specific font it is a help to name it exactly e.g. Arial bold italic.

Well, there's no way I could remember all the font that came with IE5.5 so I guess I'm out sol

I double checked and saw the advanced fonts option in IE5.5 Turns out my neighbor had them when he upgraded from IE5 just like I did.

Thanks for the help.

PS - I found a huge d/l at click here for thousands of fonts..absolutely free...125mb
