This is a dumb question but I can't seem to figure it out what font is it that Apple users, on its site and in their software? Also where can I download this font? Thanks, everyone. <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

Apple is now adopting Myriad for use on the website and promotional material. You can buy it from Adobe here:
No, you can't get it for free. That would be software piracy. There may be other similar typefaces you can find online for free, but I don't know of any.

I think Myriad gets installed when you install Adobe Acrobat.

Hmm.. I got Adobe Acrobat on my system but I don't have that font. I have Adobe Photoshop 6 on my system which runs under classic. Now I just installed a bunch of new fonts and they won't come up in my Adobe Photoshop, I have tried restarting and every thing. Do I have to go in to classic and install them there to in order to use them in Photoshop?

Classic apps, if I recall correctly, need their fonts to be stored in the Font folder under the OS9's System Folder. They won't find the fonts stored in OSX's font folders.

Brad's right about this. You need to put the fonts into the fonts folder in the system folder of OS 9.
