Maybe I'm missing something obvious, because I'm still confused. Are the
"standard QuickDraw versions" I'm looking for Type 1 or TrueType? Type1 are
PostScript fonts, right? Yes, I do have some on my Illustrator CD ROM -
about 60 it looks like. But this is a QuickDraw printer and isn't set up for
PostScript. And I'm not clear on how to find the "converted (substituted)
fonts" that I supposedly have. Shouldn't they be designated as such in the
System/Fonts folder? When I look there I see nothing that is called  a
substitution font, or a QuickDraw GX font. What I see there are exactly the
fonts that are on the installation CD, which appear to be straightforward
TrueType fonts. I tried File/Find just in case, but that didn't turn up
anything new.
