    I installed the fonts in the system but they don't appear in the font option.
    Like when you want to use text in flash, you choose a font, right? well, it's not there. It is there with illustrator. But not in flash, or photoshop. Is it me or maybe the font is corrupted or something!

    sometimes they are not in alphabetical order. or maybe its called somthing different than the filename. Just some thoughts.

    what OS are u running on?
    I think these fonts are made for a Mac. Im running on win xp pro. When I doubleclick on them it says they are invalid font files. There might be software out there that can open or convert those files so that you can use them. Ill check it out later but im pretty sure there mac fonts.

    hey i typed in ".pfb fonts" on google and i found this website:http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=241873. I read something on that page and i think Adobe Type Manager would be of some use. The fonts you are trying to use are type-1 fonts i think. This person has the same problem as you on the board in this site. Check it out and see if it helps. Post back and tell me how it goes.
