The same in both machines (PowerPC). As you see, my Palatino is in / 
System Folder/Fonts/ (i.e., OS 9). I have always installed everything  
in system installs, even languages I will never use. So I really  
can't guess why OS X didn't install Palatino in my case.

Now ---Windows Palatino is called Palatino Linotype, not just  
Palatino (I know because I have Virtual PC in my desktop); it's a  
more complete set ---it has small caps, Cyrillic, etc.; does yours?



(reload if nothing comes out at first try)

and the purchase link at the bottom:


where they have the nerve to say

> Especially suitable for Office Applications running in MS Windows

Would Prof. Zapf be thinking in Word when he created this font?

OK ---they say ``especially suitable...'', not ``especially  
crafted...'', but, anyway, that's cheap!
