```   \usepackage[utf8ttf]{inputenc}
\usepackage{ttfucs}
\DeclareTruetypeFont{shortfontname}{fontname}

"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
distribution..

(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)
