Well, I found it hard to believe too, but it’s true.  So far all they have for Macs is the old .suit files plus Postscript outline versions.  I have written to the maintainer, and he says they’re working on .otf versions, but no estimate of when.  They have .ttf versions for a limited subset, prepared for PCs, but they don’t have all I need even in that form.

Did you mean font converter.org?  I’ve tried that one (and a few others) and none of them seem to be able to do anything with my .suit files.
