From: "Carrie Keeling" <carrie.keel...@computershare.com> > They are opentype (PC, Mac), Win TrueType, and WinPostScript. Which one do I need?
I don't know what e-Publisher is, but any of these three should work fine for any program that uses fonts. Opentype is the newest format, and it may contain glyphs you can't access with Frame (but may be able to in the future, if Adobe upgrades Frame to fully support Unicode). The glyphs that you can't access will not be in the TT or T1 versions of the font at all, so you wouldn't be losing anything. If you use Indesign or Word or any other Unicode-capable applications, the OT font would be fully supported. The only reason I can think of to recommend T1 or TT is if one of them is cheaper. If you're not using a font manager, fonts are installed in Windows by going to the Windows Fonts folder (Start > Settings > Control Panel > Fonts) and going to File > Install New Font. You're best off keeping fonts somewhere else (on CD or wherever you keep original software installation files) and installing from that place. That way, if you later delete the font from the Fonts folder, you'll still be able to install it again. In other words, you should treat fonts the same way you treat other installable software.
