This has already been discussed in this thread. None of the fonts 
that appear with such searches are acceptable. All are broken, one 
way or another.

I need a font that non-Linux users can use. It must be properly 
coded, unlike all the "free" fonts that are available on the net. I 
share your "shudder" when it comes to Word, but that is the reality 
today. And, after all, if a font will work with Word, it will probably 
work with anything in Linux as well, so why argue about it?

The reference in this thread was to PostScript Type I fonts created 
by Rei Fukui. I assumed these were vector fonts. Evidently the 
page I found had bitmap versions of the vector fonts. Or maybe the 
fonts do not exist as vector fonts. I've googled and googled and 
can't find any further references to clarify what these Rei Fukui 
fonts are. Also can't find any place that allows me to download
