    Hello Steve,

    Support for OpenType fonts in XEP is near the top of our TO-DO list.
    We are not aware of OpenType to TrueType converters that produce
    reliable results, I'm not sure if such conversion is feasible at all
    since OpenType fonts utilize cubic curves for glyph drawing while
    TrueType use quadratic curves.

    Best regards,
    Alexander Peshkov

    SL> Are there any work-arounds for this problem e.g. software for converting

    SL> Is there a timescale for support for Postscript-style OpenType fonts in XEP?
