Indeed the application will be submitted electronically. I suspect
that they're not *that* clever, but I'd rather be on the safe side
(to much work toi waste on a trivial matter).
AFAIK, I don't have the commercial Linotype fonts. I have several
folders called Palatino. I have the following font files that contain
Palatino ('FFIL' in .Library/Fonts)
Even though I've been using LaTeX for years, and am pretty good at
it, I've always had a fear of the complexity of font use, and never
explored this side of LaTeX. So here I had best be treated as a
beginner. I've never even tried XeLaTeX. I would appreciate a guide
for the perplexed.
