Hi, I need to use Skia and Russellsquare fonts for a site I'm constructing, however they are mac and I use a PC. I need the equivalent pc versions or as close as possible, a sample of those fonts or a way to convert the mac font files into something useful. All suggestions gratefully received.

I'll assume you're using the fonts in a graphic context on the site? You really need to stick to the very basic six or so 'universal' font types/families for the text on a website, or the majority of visitors will see the site the wrong way, unless you can convince them to download and install your special font set...

That said, if Macromedia's Fontographer is within your budget, it should allow you to open the actual Macintosh font files and re-save them as PC format fonts to use with your graphics program... I use an old version to create PC format fonts on my Mac, and it works like a charm! (If the newest version is not within your budget, online auction sites often have people selling older/used software packages much cheaper than the latest-and-greatest versions...)
