OS9 and OSX fully support opentype. Unfortunately, there is no way to 
obtain metric information (something like afm) : so it is difficult 
to use them with tex. On the other hand, pdftex should be able to use 
them (at least for true-type/Opentype, I am not quite sure for 
T1/Opentype), if tfm files already exist...

One says me that fontlab4 will be able to convert an opentype into 
several T1 fonts.
