    I wish to purchase the Optima font for my PC and the online vendor is giving me the choice of "Post Script" or "True Type." Does it matter which one I choose? (It's to be used in Windows XP, MS Office, etc.)

    Thanks.

    I'm no font expert, but I think both would work.

    I believe TrueType is the more common format.

    The True Type one is what you'll probably want for normal use. Unless your doing design/publishing work (using Quark or InDesign, etc), then you might want the PS one.
