Well, I understood from the fourier package description that it only  
supports 4 of these, and that you will have to buy the commercial  
fonts if you want to use the "expert" options. Is that wrong?

And, furthermore, the idea would be to be able to use the same font  
for other stuff as well, such as writing in Pages ...

... so what exactly are the "Mac Postscript Type 1" fonts which are  
sold by Adobe good for (except for being "misused" in LaTeX ;-)
