I have been using the utopia/fourier/courier font combo in most of my
LaTeX documents for some time now, and really like the way they look,
especially on screen. I now want to make a Keynote presentation for
one of my papers, but I don't currently have Utopia as one of my Mac
fonts. I'd appreciate any suggestions regarding the following options:
1. Convert the LaTeX utopia font to a Mac font using one of the
available font tools. (pfaedit?) Is this feasible? Legal?
2. Find a freeware (or shareware) clone of Utopia. Any available?
3. Bite the bullet and find some left-over grant money (ha!) to
purchase from Adobe. In that case, which Adobe font package would be
most appropriate? I see three options (although there may be more):
a. Utopia Type 1 PostScript collection (7 font variants), $135.99
b. Utopia Std OpenType collection (6 font variants), $175.00
c. Adobe Type Basics OpenType Edition (*lots* of fonts, 4 Utopia
Since I'm not trying to do anything very sophisticated, I'm guessing
that the 4 fonts in the Type Basics collection (regular, bold, italic,
bold italic) will be enough, and that OpenType -- with its glyph
support -- is the preferred alternative here. But I'd appreciate a
heads-up on any possible "gotchas" if I end up having to go with (c)
above -- particularly anything related to math characters. TIA!
