Importing fonts from other operating systems

Can you offer some advice on importing fonts from Mac OS or Windows XP into OpenOffice?

I'm not an expert on MacOS. OpenOffice.org should reflect whatever fonts you have on your computer. To copy fonts from one computer to another on Windows, find the FONTS or PSFonts directory and copy the contents. If you want to set up a font substitution, choose Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org > Fonts. Select the font you don't want in the left list and select the font you do want, if it appears, in the right-hand list.
