Kara asked about Frame UNIX and PC fonts compatibility:

Nancy Paisner replied, in essence:

Hayull No!


And DD agrees emphatically!

The fonts problem still haunts. Our Palatino gets replaced with some
"Times" font, and the bullets come out changed to .."1's", I think it was.
Maybe with the right fonts installed on each platform, you might get
away with it, but I still doubt it. I have been meaning to try.

We are using Suns on UNIX with Frame, and are moving toward
PC Frame, relentlessy. To make matters more complex, we use a
proprietary set of templates that we worry about.

As Nancy says, have Frame demo their compatibility on your site, AND
using your templates. Ask them to demo using your own fonts.
