Working with Fonts

Many people set a font for an application, and leave it there indefinitely. Fonts are sort of like seat belts: you don’t really appreciate them until you need them.

Mac OS X makes font management transparent, meaning that any application that needs fonts can access the same fonts that all other applications can. How you call up a particular font, however, differs from application to application. In Word X, for instance, you can select a font from a large Font menu (shown in Figure 9.1). This is because Carbonized applications, just like Cocoa apps, can use OS X “native” and conventional PostScript fonts stored in OS X Font folders as well as utilize fonts stored in an OS 9 System Folder.
