    Hey folks.

    I'm in kind of a bind and could use your help.

    I recently installed Jaguar with a clean install from scratch and decided not even to load Classic. I figure everything I use is now OS X native.

    However, much to my dismay a standard OS 9 font "Skia" is not part of Jaguar. I did a little investigation and found the following page:

    http://www.identifont.com/show?3IG

    Turns out that Skia is a True Type Apple font that comes with OS 9. I looked on my 9.2.1 installation disc that came with my quicksilver, but couldn't find the file on the disc itself. It must reside in some compressed volume or something.

    So, is there anybody out there with Classic still installed that wants to email me the font?

    Thanks.
