I actually do like Hoefler, and I would like to use it in TeX.  I heard 
the Type 1 version is something like $300.  I can't afford to spend that 
kind of money on a font, nor do I think I should need to given it's 
installed on my OS.  What am I missing?

And how can I find out about converting Hoefler for use in TeX :-).
