Japanese fonts / font-conversion / saving Fonts in certain formats (on mac)
I today found out how to use input of japanese
symbols on the Mac OS-X.
It's nice and easy, but the TextEditor does not save
in formats I'm looking for.
Useful would be either UTF-8, or (what I'm looking
for especially) SJS.
The latter is a format that is used in Japan and
pTeX also can read SJS-encoded japanese fonts.
pTeX is a certain TeX-variant, that is used especially in
What I'm looking for is a program that either can be used
to select japanese fonts from amenue and/or keyboard an
save them in different font formats,
or a program that can convert from on...MAC Fonts/Windows Fonts
Recently, I was using a Apple MAC and opened a .doc file. I printed
the file out and noticed that the font was really "cool," the a was
more like an a we write with a c and a line (you know, kinda like we
write and NOT the way courier new does). I am trying to figure out:
First, does anyone have any idea what font it was? Second, what
program do you think I probably used? I think it looks like a TXT file
but it is a doc. What is it, just looks really good. Help me our here,

Can anybody tell me, is there a way of recognising fonts that have been
converted from Mac to PC, rather than genuinely created specifically for the
PC (or indeed the other way around)
I realise it is possible when creating typefaces to make TTF, PC Postscript,
Mac Postscript (for example in Macromedia Fontographer 4.1) is this the
'Proffessional' way it would be converted for proper commercial typefaces?
or is there a more proffessional way.
Thanks in advance. Andy

In Windows XP, there's an accessability wizard that allows the
user to change the font size for readability. There's probably
something similar in other operating systems. I think it would be
a nice thing to do for any users with large system font sizes to
detect that and offer up an alternative stylesheet. I don't know
how to approach this, though, and I'm sure it involves more than
CSS. Is it possible to detect this setting?

The difference is that you shouldn't put anything under /System unless
you know you should. And even then double-check. That's Apple's sandbox...Mac font via fontographer to pc font
I have Fontographer 4.04 and I run it in Classic on Mac OSX 10.3.3.
I have a Mac Postscript font and I have to add an euro character which
does not exist in the font.
I check out on which decimal character the euro is placed in my other
font, and find that decimal 219 is where to place it.
I generate at first a new Mac font and it works nice. Then I generate a
pc TrueType font and mail the font to the person who needs it. She tells
me that the euro exists allright - but on a wrong decimal. She tells me
that she needs it to be placed on decimal 128. This however is occupied

I'm working with a Mac which has Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.2 running on
top of the X. I use MS Word and Pagemaker and there's a problem with
helvetica italic not displaying consistently. I mean, without any
intervention, some days it's visible, other days it's not. I thought
maybe it was due to not having the font file, but it seems we do have

Some font and file woes I anticipated have become reality:
A customer gives us a Mac-Formatted CD with PageMaker files, graphics
and fonts on it.
A programm named "MacDrive" fixes the file extensions for us and makes

All Fonts have zero kilobytes (although they have non-zero kilobytes
on our old, beaten-down OS9 iMAC we got from the crate in the
basement), and their names are not fixed.
Q1. How come they have "0" kilobyte and appear empty when viewed with
a hexeditor, despite the MacDrive-Reader-Software

I have the complete collection of Computer Modern Postscript fonts
obtained from a TeX download and stored as individual font files with
names like CMxxxx in my OS 10.3.9 usr/Library/Fonts folder, and they
work fine with TeXShop.
I can't seem to add them to Font Book, however. When I try to add them
to the Font column in Font Book using the "+" button, all their names
appear in the Find dialog greyed out (other fonts are active as

special about these CM fonts that Font Book can't handle?

I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.

I'm running OS X 10.4.2 and the following fonts in /System/Library/Fonts fail
to show up in Font Book.
Apple LiGothic Medium.dfont
Helvetica LT MM

All of the fonts located in /Library/Fonts (217 fonts) do show up in Font
Any idea why it is that Font Book doesn't "like" the fonts I've listed?

What font is used as the default LabView System and Dialog font on a Windows system?
Can I use the default system and dialog font in another software (i.e; Win word or Illustrator etc.)
For Windows XP, the font is Tahoma. I don't know if Windows has a method for changing this (I thought it would be in the display settings, but couldn't find it). Maybe in the registry?

...Some System Fonts Don't Display in Font Book
My System/Library/Fonts folder contains just those fonts installed as part of
OS X. Interestingly, four of those fonts do not show in Font Book. They are:

I grabbed the above as a replacement for Suitcase (mine's a bit old
and creaky) and as ever with Beta software did a backup of critical
data and created a system restore point prior to installation.
It has however, utterly broken the system fonts - some applications
(notably Suitcase - I think it knew what I was up to) and now displays
a bold 10pt face which can make some applications unusable. It
initially trashed Windows (all fonts vanished, Start Bar, icons, the
lot) but a reboot to "last known working configuration" restored these
