I am puzzled. I installed your otf fonts and can open your Keynote file 
without crashing. It does not print however.

But, if I create the font in pfaedit by opening the files one at a time 
and saving as a Mac family either as otf or TT dfont, my font crashes 
Keynote. They must be a problem either with my fonts or with my 
pfaedit. I'll do some more checking and try on my machine at home.
