Photoshop 5.5 help

Calling all PS lovers for some help. Ok so i have PS version 5.5. i have downloaded and installed some new fonts. All my word programs such as Word, Open Office and what not can see the new fonts and use them but for some reason PS 5.5 cant. 5.5 can read some of them but not all of them. It cant even read the fonts from pslovers.com. Any way i need some ideas or solutions on how to fix this issue.

Thanx all you PS gurus

I just highlight the text and use the up/down arrow keys to flip through the fonts.

hmm, i tired that but it still doesnt list the newly installed fonts. All my old fonts are there. Do i have to load them or does 5.5 automatically list the fonts in the fonts folder?

Are they true type fonts? Did you install them while you were in Photoshop? I have had problems in the past where I installed a font while in the program and it did not show up in Photoshop.

Ok i think i figured it out. I had photoshop minimized when i installed them and i guess you have to restart every time you install a new ttf font. thats so weird. but i got it figured out. or at least i think i do.

Ok second question.

I know there are some web designers and graphic gurus in this forum. What i need help with is designing a full web page with PS 5.5. How do i make things interactive and how do i create a template for a school portfolio. im kinda lost in that department.

Thanx in advance

You don't use PS for that.

Download some free website templates.

I do web development full time, and all of my templates are started in Photoshop first.. In fact, I do the entire site in photoshop. The Photoshop File then gets "Sliced" to be ready for HTML. Slicing is an art form in and of itself, but there are literally thousands of sites out there that have tutorials for doing just what you're looking for..

That, and people here who can help...
