Install Fonts on AS/400

I copied the Georgia font from windows to the appropriate folder on my AS/400 and am trying to use it in a *AFPDS printer file.  In the DDS I've tried identifying the font by file name georgia.ttf and by font name Georgia, but it is not printing correctly.  What am I doing wrong?

I did, specifically "If not, you can drop Unicode-enabled TrueType fonts here in the IFS:  /QIBM/UserData/OS400/Fonts/TTFonts".  

Can you tell me if the Georgia font is a Unicode-enabled YrueType font?  It is in the correct folder.

Hello Leo,

I'm not sure if it is possible to use PC fonts on a iSeries server (there could be a ASCII / EBCDIC issue).

But using the font, you need to use the real fontname, not the name of the fontfile,
for this point, check the IBM page about TTfonts here
