this really helped a lot! This was he answer I was looking for. Just

Could you give me a hint what are the advantages of OpenType ver the
Postscript fonts for use in Mac applications (not LaTeX)?
And do I understand correctly that there is really no way to convert
the OpenType fonts for LaTeX? I checked out XeLaTeX but I have to
admit that, at this point of time, this solution seems to me a bit too
"non-standard" for me. On the other hand, from the font tutorial you
recommended, I had the impression (I did not carefully check this,
though) that it may be possible to convert the OpenType fonts for use
in LaTeX, as well.
Thanks and have a nice weekend.
