    Worked for me!

    I was hot on the trail, but this guide put me over the top.

    Adobe = super lame for making people synch for *.otf files.

    That stands for OPEN TYPE FILE, natch. This is a super small, easy, open file format that should be a breeze to work with.

    Thanks for the guide!
