I need to find a font called MetaPlusNormal-Roman. I can't seem to pull up anything with internet searches.  Any clues where I can look to find this?  I need the Mac version.  I think it might be a true type font.

Meta is a commercial font by Erik Spiekermann. You can buy it at
http://www.fontfont.de/packages/meta7142/metrom2710/metrom2710_xx.html .  It is rather expensive, but there are no cheap clones out right now. As far as I know, they sell Type1 only, Mac or Win format.

Hope this helps,
