You can download and install it in the fonts directory.  Here's a link to get the font.

I think it may have worked.
I have Win 7
Can you direct me where to go from here as far as installing?

If you followed the instructions and copied the ttf file into the C:\Windows\Fonts directory, it should then be automatically available in MS Word.

Or if you double click the font, there will be an install button when it opens.

Did it install in the proper directory?  it should have added it to the C:\Windows\Fonts folder.  If not, manually drop it in the directory and try it.

Also, you have to install it as an administrator.  You may also be able to right click on the font file and select "Install"

For you to have standard, bold, italic, and bold italic available, you should have 4 separate true type fonts named with the short names shown below.  The long full names will only show within the FONTS folder because that folder has special attributes.

There are several ways to install fonts in Windows 7.  There are also a few reasons why a new font that shows in the FONTS folder may still not show in the fonts drop-down list in Word.  First of all check that you have the correct fonts and then use one of the methods here to install them:
