    Methinks you're wrong. I just checked one, STFangsong and it's on SL and Lion. Start with Font Management in OS X

    A large number are wrong.  You can look at this list and remove those present on it from yours:

    Ah! I see that I relied on a search for STFangsong and came up with STFangsong.fontinfo item, which isn't the same as the actual font. Sorry for confusing the issue. The Font Management guide should be accurate.

    Looks good, except for Raanana and New Peninim which have been around for some time I think.

    I had neither of those two fonts (Raanana and New Peninim) in my clean install of Snow Leopard. They only appeared since installing Lion.

     

    I don't know why your SL install would be missing them.  These two Hebrew fonts have been standard in OS X since at least 10.3 and installed by default since 10.4

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2444

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1538

     

    They are also on the non-Apple list of 10.6 fonts (optionally not installed) at

    They would have been missing in Snow Leopard only if you did a selective install and turned off the installation of Additional Fonts. Otherwise, they are part of the Snow Leopard installation.

    Of course in that case he would be missing about 50 others as well....

    Yup, so I'm not sure how just those two could be missing from the SL install.

    May I add-on?

     

     

    It seems to me that the list of required fonts grows with each new version of MacOS, and thus the number of fonts visible in app font menus.

     

    (I think "required" =~ the set of fonts that Font Book refuses to disable, yes?)

     

    My preference is to have the absolute minimum number of fonts enabled, because that's all I use.   Some apps get a bit balky when called upon to display a huge, long list of fonts.

     

    Taking care to leave alone the totally mandatory fonts, currently

     

         Geneva.dfont

         Helvetica.dfont

         HelveticaNeue.dfont

         HelveticaNeueDeskUI.ttc

         Keyboard.ttf

         LastResort.ttf

         LucidaGrande.ttc

         Monaco.dfont

     

    in the past I have used the command line and sudo to move fonts I really can't imagine needing out of the system font folder to an archive location, but this gets a bit tedious, and I'm not quite certain what I'm risking.

     

    Is there a better way?

     

    Alternative wayof asking:  No offense intended to the speakers of these languages, but I have no conceivable use for the Arabic, Pashto, Persian, and Urdu characters in the Geeza Pro font. Why can I not at disable it?

     

    TIA

    Hi Hen3ry,

     

    I've written a long article on fonts, the first part of which is a list of minimum fonts in each version of OS X from 10.3.x forward. baltwo linked to it in the second post of this thread.

     

    As you found, there are certainly more fonts that Apple/Font Book consider "required" which are not. Braille? Not having any problem with my vision, why would I need those? Any of the Asian Kanji fonts? No use to me.
