I've installed .ttf fonts and they show up in Font Book, but cannot see them in Applications such as Word.  Using OS X Lion

It is located in Desktop/Library/FontCollections/Windows Office Compatible Collection/

I've downloaded fonts from the same site with success.  Fonts appear to be valid (no yellow triangle errors).

    After installation, fonts may no be available to running Applications until after a Restart.


    Long ago, Word used to use a subset of all the Installed fonts. If you wanted to add another font that was alrready installed on your System, you had to add it to the list inside Word. I am not a User of the current version, so I do not know if that is still true.
