Hi there, I have a font problem I need help with.  I¹m in an 
educational setting where there is a dual platform situation.  Windows 
95 and Macintosh are pretty much spread around the large district 
where I am. There is an accepted application of ClarisWorks 4.0 which 
has been set as the app of acceptance.  Teachers and students are 
supposed to try to use the app so that anything created can be shared 
over the platforms ...as ClarisWorks is installed on both platforms.  
The dilemma is this.....  the font TIMES on the Mac side is not 
totally compatible with the TIMES ROMAN font on the 95 side.  Anything 
created on the Mac side with TIMES is slightly bigger when viewed with 
the TIMES ROMAN on the 95 side.  MANY users are going with TIMES 
because it is a customary font, and most of the sharing to be done has 
to come from the Mac side, be seen in the 95 side, be able to be 
edited, then go back to the Mac side.  (confused yet?)  OK, OK cut to 
the chase..... I need a Windows 95 font compatible to the Mac TIMES 
font.  At this point in the game, there is not an option to change 
fonts on the Mac side due to too much ³politics² .... yet if I can 
come up with a 100% compatible font for the Windows 95 side it sure 
would eliminate all the fuss.  Can you help?
