Two mistakes: don't copy, and don't copy into the system's own  
"private" area! If you want to install a font, open it in Font Book,  
if you want to copy a font file for use by all users, then copy it  
into /Library/Fonts, or better a subdirectory "Additions" or such in  
it. Then log out and in.



If you don't find it in the index, look very carefully through the  
entire catalogue.
