    Lastly, my understanding of the way osx handles fonts is that they let they leave the hardwork to the fonts themselves (which seems like the ttf methodology), so the fonts can end up hanging themselves if the font package is poor.
    This is entirely wrong. Maybe read this http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2012...ont-rendering/

    A very quick read of that says nothing that contradicts what was said in that adobe link, nor what I said.
    Perhaps you could point out exact areas of disagreement?
