Is there really a font named German Bold Italic?

And if so, where can I get it?

It came with the CD single. I like the song, it's corny, and the font reminds me of the Power Puff Girls.

If you're on OSX it should work just fine.

"If you're on OSX"? Hasn't ttf been supported on macs since at least the classic (OS5? OS6?)?

TrueType was jointly developed by Apple and Microsoft in the early nineties (in order to trump Adobe's Type 1 dominance). Any current Mac should support it.

Katemonkey: I downloaded and installed the font fine on my mac (10.3.whatever)

Double click on it to launch Font Book (OS X 10.3) and then click the appropriate button to install it.

Yeah works fine on OSX 10.3.5 for me. Never had a problem with any PC fonts, TTF or OTF or PS.

So, umm, yeah...the company I work for does type conversion services and can convert a PC TT font to a Mac TT font for something like $35. (Yes, there are subtle differences, and though some TT fonts will work on some versions of both platforms, they don't always do so consistently.)

If you can get your hands on a copy of Fontographer or FontLab, you might be able to figure out how to do it yourself.
