Well, my opinion is that the AccuFonts aren't as free as we'd like; the
alternative, Helvetica et al., are encoded in ISO 8859-X. Therefore, the
options are:
- AccuFonts, knowing that we'd get a similar discussion again.
- Helvetica in ISO 8859-X encoding, with Squeak moving to ISO 8859 as
- Helvetica in MacRoman encoding.

I think the second solution is the most definitive solution.
