Most systems do now support truetype. For the others, ttf fonts can be 
converted to postscript with utilities like ttf2pt1.
IMO we should have a "fonts" section on the sword website where _all_ of the 
fonts used by the modules can be downloaded, and maybe a tutorial on how to 
install them (unix).
