Mac OS X fonts in Mac OS 9

Dear all,

Is it possible to use MacOS X fonts in the classic environment? 
What's the procedure if it is ...

Cheers!

No problem:

a)  TrueType fonts (.ttf - the vast majority) can simply be *moved* to 
the fonts folder in your Classic system folder.

b)  OpenType fonts (.otf) can be placed there as well but require Adobe 
Type Manager Light to work:

acintosh>

c)  dfonts (.dfnt) are trickier as it's a new format. You could try this 
utility to convert them to TrueType and in turn move them to Classic's 
font folder:

Avoid merely *copying* the fonts as you would then end up with two 
identical sets activated under OSX.
