._CorpoABol.scr is the "linux-readable" version of the resource fork data,
the CorpoABol.scr data fork is empty (0 bytes) on the original font CD,
all data font data is put into the resource fork.

I've created the copy with "tar" from Mac OS X which copies the resource forks
into ._* files ...

and the windows shareware tool ("cfsetup.exe") can read/convert ._CorpoABol.scr,
so that data should be fine...
