This thread has gone on quite a while and there has been some misinformation,
but the above seems dead on. I'd would add that the font file names must
be lower case for mkttfdir (the one in Debian's fttools) to work properly.
Also, if you do just this, Netscape 4.76 will be able to use your new
Truetype fonts -- it is not necessary to run a font server as has been
suggested in this thread. (This is all with Debian Unstable).
