If you are serious about Postscript, you have to buy ATM for PCs and use
the fonts from there (I'm pretty sure the license lets you do that), or
better yet, get Adobe Type Basics, which has the Postscript 35, Tekton,
Adobe Garamond, and some others. The PC version has .afm and .pfb files.
I think that the Alladin Ghostscript even has a font config file set up
for this type bundle. If not, I can mail a copy to anyone who needs it.

Mike.
