Hi Bruno,

this really helped a lot! This was he answer I was looking for. Just  
make sure: you said that Mac Postcript ...

> Classic font format. Putting the screen font suitcase and the LWFN  
> PostScript fonts inside /Library/Fonts or ~/Library/Fonts makes them

and that OpenType ...

Could you give me a hint what are the advantages of OpenType ver the  
Postscript fonts for use in Mac applications (not LaTeX)?

And do I understand correctly that there is really no way to convert  
the OpenType fonts for LaTeX? I checked out XeLaTeX but I have to  
admit that, at this point of time, this solution seems to me a bit too  
"non-standard" for me. On the other hand, from the font tutorial you  
recommended, I had the impression (I did not carefully check this,  
though) that it may be possible to convert the OpenType fonts for use  
in LaTeX, as well.

Thanks and have a nice weekend.
