    I constantly see messages when I open Microsoft Office documents about missing fonts. Does anyone know of a package I can download to have all of these?

    Since they are likely MS-specific fonts, you should find them in the Office 2004 test drive. If you don't have the test drive you can download it here . You may need to run it to get the fonts installed, but you can then move the fonts to another folder & then uninstall the test drive. By default, Office puts the fonts in your home folder > Library > Fonts, so just move them to HD > Library > Fonts for them to be available to all users.

    That seemed to work for some documents. I need to go searching around for others I guess.

    You may not find all of them. It's possible that the PC users aren't just using the Microsoft fonts, just as we Mac users use many fonts from many different places. Since OS X can use Windows fonts, you might be able to find the fonts as free downloads by doing a Google search & use them.
