You can get many fonts in both TrueType and PostScript type 1 format. PostScript doesn't have a particular set of fonts specific to it--it just uses a different file format to DESCRIBE those fonts, and you can't display these on Windows 2000 without additional software. (XP displays PostScript type 1 fonts without this additional software).
