I don’t think anyone has been developing these fonts locally for many years, so my efforts to get .otf or .ttf versions have not borne fruit.  I tried using fondu to convert the .suit files, but I get an error on each: e.g.

I find it hard to believe you can't get the fonts from <http://www.yale.edu/universityprinter/typeface/typeface.html>. I'm not there so I can't but you are. Are they really that ancient that .ttf or .otf versions aren't available? Those versions can be used on Mac OS X.

Good Luck,
