Safely Using Fonts Across Platforms

Recently, I wrote a brief article in Macworld that covers the issues surrounding the use of fonts across platforms, including Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

It includes the short list of fonts you can count on having on all platforms, why documents created in Mac OS 9 may have “missing fonts” when opened in Mac OS X, when and why you SHOULD use the Bold and Italic buttons when formatting text (!), and more.
