Quick! What's similar to Britannic?

I need to mutilate a PDF that was created by someone else, and I don't have one of the fonts (Britannic). I don't want to buy it just to use for a couple of pages, and the client will NOT notice the difference if I replace it with something similar.

I've got lots of Adobe and Bitstreams. Must be something similar in here somewhere ...

Suggestions?

You need to have these panics before KT goes to bed. ;)

I found a knockoff of Britannic -- a free TT font called Grenoble. Didn't look very well drawn, but I knew my client wouldn't notice the difference.

But I threw in the towel on the PDF job anyway. It was going to take way too much time, and I'm already working 7 days a week, most nights until 2 or 3 a.m.

I actually got an e-mail from a client last night at 12:41 a.m., and I suspect she knew I'd still be at the computer. <g>

Grenoble is also the name for the Britannic knockoff from Softmaker (on the Megafont CD) and B&P Graphics (in the Serials Collection CD). I would guess that both come from the same URW outlines.
