Subject: REPLY TO REQUEST FOR GREEK POSTSCRIPT FONT
There is no major problem in transferring a PostScript font from a Mac to
a PC provided that (a) you have access to a Mac and LaserWriter and (b)
you don't need a PC screen font.
For example, open a Mac document which uses the required font, using e.g.
MS Word, then Print but press Command-F to send the output to file. This
puts the PostScript of the Mac font at the front of the PostScript output
file and you can then extract the font pretty easily if you have even a
nodding acquaintance with PostScript.
There are some other, easier ways of getting the PostScript out of the
PostScript font file on the Mac if you have some special programs (or some
ordinary programs used in a special way).
So don't pay for a PostScript font to be "converted" from Mac to PC.
Not unless you want screen fonts, e.g. for Windows.
