    Do you have the originals anywhere?
    AFM was a necessity to convert industry standard font files to something the fantastic Windows could understand.

    AlexisV: Originals? I have the .afm/.inf/.pfb/.pfm formats if that's what you mean.

    Blue Velvet: So are there any software solutions that can simply add functionality to OS X so that it can read these fonts? Conversion of formats sounds like a process where something can be lost or altered in the conversion. I saw that Adobe Type Manager doesn't seem to be available for OS X.
