Thanks David. It's a bit strange though as it's the same version that I
have but with all font files typed &1BD. There's no indication of why
this is and the documentation still states that font files should be of
filetype Data (&ffd).

Anyway, I've now changed StrongFont so that spritefiles are considered
StrongED fonts and all other filetypes potential ZapFonts. Like before
ZapFont files must have 'ZapFont' at the start of the file so it should
a safe enough to make this change.
