    Jerome,

    I've not heard of such a utility. What I have seen in the past, is "font editing" software, that allows the opening of fonts (e.g. in postscript format), and the saving in another format (e.g. truetype). As you probably know most truetype fonts can be embedded in powerpoint files.

    You will of course have to refer to your font license for your postscript fonts to see if this is allowed.

    Is there a few standard font editing software that you would feel comfortable using to convert post script fonts to TT Fonts for Windows XP powerpoint storing???
