My Windows XP box has four Palatino TrueType files (no small caps, though)
in c:\Windows\fonts . If you run XEP on the Windows box, you can configure
it to use those fonts. There might be other fonts in there you might find

> The information in the XEP User Guide about how to install fonts

> * Are there reasonably decent public-domain fonts out there?
> * If the only choice is to purchase them, whose should we buy?
> At the moment I need only a small number of fonts:
> Palatino: regular, italic, bold, bold italic, small-caps
> Lucida Typewriter: regular, italic, bold, bold italic
> I'd appreciate any suggestions.
