    Default Open type fonts reading cross platform?

    Hello all. I designed a form on my PC (Windows XP) at home with Indesign CS and used Open Type Font Adobe Garamond Pro. I took the job to work where we have mostly Macs and tried to load the Adobe Garamond Pro fonts that I used on my PC, so I could read and work on the file at work, but the Indesign CS program (at work) would not recognize the Adobe Garamond Pro fonts.

    I thought the Open type concept allowed you to use these fonts on Macs or PC's..... or does each computer already have to have that particular font already loaded on it?

    Thanks for your help.
