What could Apple have been thinking, to throw a monkey wrench into the workings of such a widely-used font family?
As Helvetica is a standard typeface in Macs, probably Apple would not be supplying the old Type 1 fonts, which are quite passé. But why they should supply the TT/OT version now that Macs (and Windows) don't need ATM to use PS/OT fonts seems strange; perhaps they're reminding people that TrueType was an Apple Computers invention.
