Fonts

Not only can you use your existing TrueType and PostScript fonts in Mac OS X, you can also use some Microsoft Windows fonts, which means using cross-platform files can be less of a problem. You do not need Adobe Type Manager to display PostScript fonts clearly on the screen nor to rasterize fonts sent to your PostScript printer.

You cannot touch the fonts that are stored in the System Folder, but you can customize the fonts in the various Fonts folders which are located in the various Library folders. In the multi-user environment of Mac OS X, there is a root Fonts folder, plus individual users of that Macintosh have their own user Fonts folders. Applications can also open their own fonts. This means different users can have different font collections. See Chapter 26 for more information.
