"One instance of the \DeclareTruetypeFont{shortfontname}{fontname}
command is required for each font that you want to use in your
document where fontname is the name of a    Truetype font and
shortfontname is the string consisting of the 6 first letters of
fontname. In the body of the document you can change the current font
to one that has been declared in the preamble using the command
\TruetypeFont{fontname}. "

Does the above look familiar to any one?

Sticking with pdflatex for the moment ... Came accross this utf-8
enabled tool for using ttf in pdflatex documents under  MikTek

"Unicode Truetype font installer for LaTeX"

  (Not under CTAN it appears - that seems strange)

Anyone used this in TeXworks? Draw backs?

Thinking of Tw scripting its creation of the necessary files to use
.ttf (possibly only works under Windows)

Appreciate any thoughts please,
