Font File Help

I have been trying to look up what font files in WoW's font folder effects which things in the game.

So far from replacing certain fonts, the files have changed:

FRIZQT__.ttf : Changed main UI text etc like NPC names, buffs, Quest log and Combat text (including normal and critical)

ARIALN.ttf : Changed chat font

MORPHEUS.TTF : only changed Mail window font (Did not change quest text like some people say)

Friends.ttf : changed friends list font

skurri.ttf : didn't change anything, did not change combat font

What is skurri.ttf used for? Is it not used anymore?

It's still referenced in Fonts.xml, but only once (#208). The FontObject is called "NumberFont_Outline_Huge". But not sure if that's used anywhere.

I discovered a while back that "skurri" is actually incorrect. The actual name is supposed to be in caps like the rest of the names (i.e. SKURRI.ttf).

Not sure why this was never fixed, but there you go.

Amusingly, the FrameXML refers to it in lowercase. Copied from the FrameXML/Fonts.xml linked above on Tekkub's Github, lines 208-212.

Code:
<Font name="NumberFont_Outline_Huge" font="Fonts\skurri.ttf" outline="NORMAL" virtual="true">
		<FontHeight>
			<AbsValue val="30"/>
		</FontHeight>
	</Font>

Isn't Skurri that cursive larger font used for quest titles in the quest pane (when you are accepting it)?

Your mail if it contains text messages should also be using it, as well as all the various books in the world.

Skurri is a pseudo-cursive font, yes.

Morpheus is the Diablo-like font used for in-game mail.

Skurri is used for the combat text on unit frames. If you don't use the default unit frames, you probably haven't seen it in years. If you do use the default unit frames, look at your portrait the next time you're in combat; you'll see your incoming damage and such.

I am going to update the font page at vranx, here is what I have from this thread and some others I found here at WoWI.

FRIZQT__.ttf (the main UI font - NPC names, player names, spell names, item names, buffs, quest log text, combat text, button text)
ARIALN.ttf (chat font, info text, small text)
skurri.ttf (default unit frame combat text)
MORPHEUS.ttf (mail text, quest log header text)

I saw combat text listed for FRIZQT in one thread and ARIALN in another, can anyone confirm one? Any other suggestions?

I will assume that is for the friends list and nothing else, correct me if that is not right.
