I'm in the process of switching over to Nisus Writer, since WP appears to be my last Classic-
dependent app anyway and now that I've got one of the last PPC Minis I'm looking towards
*his* eventual successor having to be Intel someday). Talk about brand loyalty, eh? ;) I wish I

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
