This TechNote discusses how to install fonts in Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows ME and Windows XP, as well as how to get Windows to display PostScript fonts which are installed but are not displaying correctly. Modern versions of Windows use the Fonts Control Panel for both PostScript Type 1, TrueType and OpenType fonts from Adobe. The Windows core fonts are OpenType fonts from Adobe which have extra tables and capabilities in OpenType fonts from Adobe-enabled applications.
