    Try a Google search for PostScript TrueType Phinney <http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=PostScript+TrueType+Phinney&btnG=Google+Search >.

    Look for whitepapers by Thomas Phinney.

    Some versions of Windows can convert Type1 to TrueType; older versions require Adobe Type Manager (ATM), which is free (see the downloads page).

    Type 1 font files for the Mac require some reworking to work with Windows.
