Heh, heh, I spoke too soon.

More testing has revealed a problem.

San Serif fonts that use the term "oblique" are not translating correctly. I get a font that is called "oblique" but the font that shows up on screen and prints is roman. Grr. The odd thing is that these fonts show up correctly in InDesign's WYSIWYG font menu.

When I view, say, Franklin Gothic Oblique in ATMs Font Preview feature, it says the font name is "Franklin Gothic Italic" which you and I know does not exist. It points to the correct font file, and the font file has the correct name.

All of this testing has managed to get my Windows XP PC all confused. Go figure

I imagine there is some setting in Transtype Pro I need to use to fix this problem. I'll report back on the quality of their technical support.
