    I have recently started using iWork more and more often. It works very well for me and opens word files very well. But on some files which are made using a new office 08 font, i get font errors.
    Is there a way to import the Office 08 fonts into Pages? I looked in /Library/Fonts/Microsoft/ but there weren't any font's there.

    Thanks in advance!

    I will pretend that you don't have a pirated copy of Word. There is no such thing as a Word 08 font. There are only fonts. So long as the fonts are in one of your Fonts folders rather than an included subfolder, Pages and every other standard app will use them. Word will still be able to use them.

    Hmm, but for some reason they didn't show up. Anyway, i just put the cd in, and started looking in the install files, and i found the fonts.:)
    Thanks for your help.
