    Bo:
    The smaller font is a pixel font. There are some available for sale and some
    are free. They are fonts created by arranging pixels, not vectors.
    Essentially bitmap fonts. When you use them in Fireworks turn off all
    anti-aliasing and kerning (letter spacing) and use the defaults of the font.

    Some sources for pixel fonts:

    http://www.minifonts.com/fontlist.html
    http://www.fontsforflash.com/
    http://www.dsg4.com/04/extra/bitmap/index.html
    http://www.dafont.com/bitmap.php
    This site offers links to pixel fonts (as well as many other good resources)
    http://websitetips.com/
    You can also do a search on pixel fonts.

    Regards, Pat
