It's confusing, but not as bad in practice:
1) If you want to use it in a Classic Application, it has to be in
System Folder| Fonts. Equally, it has to be a Mac Font. In OSX,
Windows fonts work, too.
2) Don't do anything with the folder System| Library| Fonts. Leave it alone.
3) If you are the only user of your Mac, whether you use Library|
Fonts or ~| Library| Fonts is irrelevant. If you share it, fonts in
your Home Folder Library are only available to you.
4) In practice, WP has a very limited set of fonts while I have over
400 available under OSX applications spread around all four font
