My Mac Applications do not recognize my Post script fonts.  Are they supposed to, and if so, why aren't they?  I have 7.6, will OS 8 help?

A Computer doesn't use post script fonts. These fonts are used by your (laser) printer. A computer only recognizes bitmapped (also known as screen fonts) and true type fonts.

You need to find the screen font equivalents of your postscript fonts. A good idea may be to install Acrobat Reader version 3. This installs a lot of replacement fonts and Adobe Type Manager Version 4 (ATM) Which take care of a lot of font handling issues.
