Mornin' Folks,

I'm using OS 8.6

I found something this morning that has me really puzzled ..

I drug the Chicago Font Suitcase (While it was in the System Font Folder) 
onto ResEdit ..

It had UMPTEEN resources and EVERY FONT in the Font Folder in it

I closed it ..

Then drug it onto Resorcerer ...

All it had was the Normal Chicago Font resources

I copied it onto another drive .. and drug it on to ResEdit .. 

It was a NORMAL Chicago suitcase

So I got to checking the other Suitcases

Same thing ..

If you drag a suitcase that is in the System Font Folder onto ResEdit .. 
It opens with ALL KINDS of resources .. But if you drag it onto 
Resorcerer .. All it has is the Normal suitcase components for that Font

If you drag it out of the System Font Folder .. Then drag it onto ResEdit 
.. It opens as a Normal suitcase

NOW .. THIS IS WEIRD .. Regardless of whether it is in the System Font 
Folder, on the Desktop or another Drive .. In Get Info .. Its SIZE IN Ks 
remains the same ..

With all the resources that it shows as containing when it is in the 
System Font Folder and opened with ResEdit .. IT SHOULD BE BIG BIG .. 
Hundreds & Hundreds Of Ks

As Spok used to say to Kirk "Fascinating"
