Right Fonts for Windows.
There are slight differences in the TrueType fonts designed
for each OS therefore Mac and Windows users cannot share
TrueType fonts. But, OpenType fonts are cross-platform, the
same font file works under both Macintosh and Windows
If you have some programs running while installing fonts
under Windows, they may require that you exit the
application and restart for the new fonts to be available in
the font menu.
OpenType fonts install in the same manner as TrueType fonts
and co-exist peacefully with TrueType and PostScript Type 1
fonts. However, it is wise not to have the same font
installed in multiple formats. That is, don't install both
Helvetica in TrueType format and Helvetica in Type 1 format
at the same time. It could cause font conflicts when trying
to use the fonts.
