Helvetica is owned by Linotype. I went to their website and purchased a copy
in TrueType format. I then installed it on both the Windows machine and on
the QNX machine. It displays just fine under Photon, but still does not
display using Phindows on the Windows computer. Can this scheme be made to
work? The license for Helvetica is for 5 machines, so there is nothing
underhanded going on here.

The two fonts that I need are Helvetica 20 bold, and Helvetica 48.
Apparently these sizes do not ship with Photon, so they get translated
Swiss, which can’t be used with Phindows
If I could purchase or otherwise acquire these fonts in fixed, Photon
format, I would be home free. Any advice as to how I might accomplish

Yes, that is the problem.
Is it possible for us to purchase licenses for the fonts at issue,
so, who would we contact?
Thanks for the help,
Bitstream. If this is your application, you can restrict
it to use bitmap fonts only (Helvetica, Courier, Lucida).
IIRC, run fontcfg … all the bitmap fonts have a ‘P’ icon beside
the name in the fontdir index listing, while the PFRs (ones
causing the problems) have a ‘B’ icon beside the name.

Check the knowledge base for “Phindows Font Issues”
Some of the fonts available in qnx4 are not available for use
with phindows (licensing issues restrict us from transmitting them)
