Hi,
I am currently trying to develope a system which is required to run on various operating systems (windows\ linux\ solaris etc..). My problem is that i would like to use various fonts, however i cannot use the fonts specific to the devlopement enviroment (windows) as they are not present on the other platforms (and would therefore ruin the design). I know that java has a few true type fonts but im looking for something more interseting. My question is are there any fonts that I can use on all platforms and if not can I ship a custom font with my application (plus where can i get them and how does it work).

Thanks in advance for your much appriciated advice

Adam
