Hi, ALL,
I am trying to create a cross-platform software.
My main platform is Windows.

I want to use "Small Fonts" (this is how it is called on Windows).
I just check and it looks like this is not TrueType/OpenType font.

Is there a way to convert the font to use in *nix? Or maybe there is an
equivalent font with that name already?

Could someone suggest some solution that will work on any WM in *nix?

Thank you.

Sorry, I don't know what font is that but FontForge can be used to convert fonts (gentoo media-gfx/fontforge) but you need to know what font format are you converting (I used Fontforge to convert ps to otf and it worked very well).
Hope this will help
