Does Windows support Type1 fonts?  I recently tried to install one and
the problem was that Windows (XP) didn't associate the extension "pfb"
with a font at all.  No problem to install Jacko's OpenType fonts.  It
makes no difference whether I install them using the control panel or
I simply throw them into C:/windows/fonts, after a reboot they are
available.  Installing Type1 fonts seems to be more difficult.  Are
they supported at all?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
