I had no idea you could install a TTF!!!
On the other hand, the FreeType package makes pretty good looking fonts and
gives you access to the fonts loaded on your computer...at a steeper memory
price, I think.

I'm not sure what the difference is between loading a TTF as described and
using FreeType, but, for example, a 9 point Verdana using FreeType is about
the same size as a 12 point Verdana loaded manually.

BTW--anyone know how to uninstall a font loaded from the file list?
