Re: [PPLetterpress] font problem
If you still need the info I have conversion sequences for TT to PS1 and
PC to Mac, using Fontographer. These are from the old Altsys
"underground manual." I use them all the time.

- GUI_____.PFM and GUI_____.PFB are the files of pc type-1 font italic
typeface, i guess (GUardy Italic)
GUI_____.TTF is the file of (the same, I guess) true-type font italic typeface.
Is roman or bold typeface really used in the work?
I think it's better to send a PDF with all fonts embeded.
- .pfb is pc type1 outline file
.pfm is pc type1 metrics file
that's enough for pc type1 fontface.
.ttf file is the only file needed as pc true-type fontface.
fontfaces are grouped as fontfamily in menu by data recorded in file
info (inside file), but lonely typeface will still work.
guess, you have lonely typeface, italic, in true-type and type1 variants.
