I'm sure I should know what this font is, but I haven't got it and it's looking like I will need to buy it ... a bitmap image is just not going to work for this particular job.

Korinna, is it not?

Here's a MyFonts link to it. (http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/agfa/itc-korinna/)

Probably Korinna Extrabold, though it could be Bold with strokes and such. Some lateral compression, and what looks a skew.

Thank you both!!! Of course it is. Mutilated, as you say, but nonetheless ... and I have it so don't need to buy it. Phew!

Ah Korinna... The third party XPress 3 training videos had documents set in Korinna. I remember that, but can't for the life of me remember he name of the company that put them out.

Ah, it just came to me - MacAcademy

Ah, it just came to me - MacAcademyHeh! The tape training I panned in a review for an early issue of X-Ray magazine way back when. Was given MacAcademy's, another truly weak course, and David Blatner's all on VHS to review and David's, while not suited for everyone's learning style or needs, were by far the best general course. MacAcademy's was riddled with errors and lack of practical experience with XPress, and the third company's tapes were simply lacking any real 'meat' whatsoever (showing their lack of practical experience with the program, as well).

I had a bit of a struggle making it bold enough but it was worth it, and if one must mutilate a font it might as well be that one. <eg>

Oh - and regarding the "mutilation"... some of it comes from the fact that it was snipped from a scanned magazine photo of a yellow race car on the track. It's the decal on the side of the car, which is not a completely level, flat surface. ;-) Also probably had squashed bugs, grease, tire rubber, and who knows what else on it, LOL. Hanging onto the white outline wasn't easy. Didn't need the white outline for font ID, of course, but at the time I was trying to avoid having to recreate the logo from scratch. A hopeless cause.
