Thanks for the information. However, I do not use proprietory software
or fonts, so I would not be trying to take Windows fonts.

I had been asked to create a document just like an existing one. Since
the original was created in Pagemaker, they had used Garamond. I wanted
to do it in LaTeX, and wanted the new one to look as much similar to the
original as possible. Hence the search for a Garamond-like font.
Garamond is an interesting variant of Times, and looks good in many
situations. It would be good to have a font like that.
