Where in OS 10.7.5 do fonts get installed? User, system, both? How to install open type fonts?
OpenType fonts are installed the same way that fonts in other formats are installed. Fonts are installed in the global /Library/Fonts folder or the user's ~/Library/Fonts folder.
Fonts in the /System/Library/Fonts folder are located there by Apple because they are used by the OS. They are also available to third-party applications. Damaged or deleted System fonts may cause a world of hurt. Therefore, you should leave the /System/Library/Fonts folder alone.
Finally, there is absolutely no need to install any font in more than one location. Multiple copies of a font--even if they are in different formats--conflict with each other.
