Windows XP problem

Windows XP rejects some older truetype fonts--no, I am not making this up! Micro$oft has added a checking routine, and refuses to use any TrueType font that doesn't meet their criteria (which may change from year to year). It seems that some of the older truetype fonts do not have all of the tables WindowsXP expects [such as the OS/2 Table]. This is often the case when the font was made with an earlier version of Fontographer. One can fix it by regenerating the font in FontLab or Pfaedit.
