Mac fonts on PC?

Do any of you know if Mac fonts (Mac OS 9 fonts) work on PC's? What about Mac OS X fonts?

OS X can use TTF fonts, the same as a PC. Some don't work tho.. you have to try.

Also OS 9 fonts wont work in Windows.

you could pick up TTConverter1.5 from VersionTracker and make PC friendly fonts from your Mac fonts.......

and vice versa.

There is a nice prog called fontographer from macromedia, which converts any type of mac fonts to pc format and vice versa and even let you edit fonts. I use version 4.1.5 for years without probl.
