Recently, one of my clients sent me a purchased font in the dreaded .dfont format (.dfont is how Macs save fonts…it stands for "Data Fork Font"…dumb!).  While this is nice on Macs [several fonts can be bundled in one .dfont file], it's not great for a PC because, well, Windows has no idea what to do with it.

Fortunately, Google provided an answer pretty quickly.  Apparently, there's a nifty little bit of freeware out there called DfontSplitter.  If the name isn't obvious, DfontSplitter basically breaks up the .dfont file from the Mac and converts it into individual True Type Font files…these Windows understands

So for those of you out there who have a Mac and are making fun of me for my lack thereof, bite me! For those that are in the same boat as me, check out DfontSplitter–it pretty much rocks!
