    Thanks a ton. That saved me a lot of time.

    I am a mac user, but in office I use Ubuntu via VBox on a Win XP machine.

    Lucida Grande is my favorite text font.

    Regards

    Anyone else that installed these have trouble with the Lucida Mac font? Everything works fine except all numbers do not have the same bolded, defined look.
