help finding font

Hi Does anybody know where I can find a free version of Bookman Old Style font? A person I work with recently received a Word document with this font, now they want the font installed on their machine. By Monday. For a Pagemaker document due Tuesday.

Now another stupid question: Why is it, when I open the document in Word, it tells me the font is Bookman Oldstyle, but when I do a "find", the font does not show up as being installed on my computer? Or am I missing something obvious??

Hate to tell ya xsedrinam, but the download button on that website leads to fonts.com, where they want to charge me $22.00 for the font. Thanks for trying though

I got Bookman Old Style with a copy of MS Office 2004. Try installing a demo of that and see if the font doesn't tag along...
