Back in the days of yore (System 7, Mac OS 8 and 9), we were advised to minimize the number of fonts, otherwise you could get system crashed.


1) With Mac OS X, is it still a good idea to minimize the number of fonts? After installing Microsoft Office and QuarkXPress, I now have 289 fonts.


2) If so, as far as performance is concerned, is disabling a font as good as deleting a font?


3) I know the fonts I use; it is only a few. Is there any other fonts that I should not mess with (because system utilities use them)?


Thank you in advance for any advice, insights and suggestions!
