Ok. Let's figure this out, for reals.
If I go and run "sudo mkfontscale /System/Library/Fonts /Library/
Fonts; mkfontscale ~/Library/Fonts; sudo mkfontdir /System/Library/
Fonts /Library/Fonts; mkfontdir ~/Library/Fonts; xset fp default; xset
+fp /System/Library/Fonts,/Library/Fonts; xset +fp ~/Library/Fonts;
xlsfonts | wc -l" I get 9141 fonts as a result. (Obviously, this will
depend on how many Mac fonts you have installed.)
'cat /usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/OTF/fonts.dir' lists 24 fonts, so it seems
to support OTF.
I have a Zapfino.dfont in my /Library/Fonts directory; after the
above command, I see it listed in fonts.dir:
However, 'xlsfonts | grep -i zapf' produces no output. Hmm.
