Default Helvetica and Helv Neue in Leopard

Just thought I'd mention that in Leopard, both Helvetica and Helvetica Neue are included as .dfonts (TrueType) in the System font folder:
They cannot be deactivated or even removed, as the System will re-install them itself if you try.
Helvetica and Helvetica Neue are obviously used heavily in graphic design work, and loads of work uses the Type1 PostScript versions, e.g. "Helvetica Neue 55 Roman".
There may well be problems with the OS favouring the TT version over the PS version, if you have both installed.

Some people have suggested using a brand new OpenType Helvetica Neue from Linotype for all your work, which will have the menu name "Helvetica Neue LT Std".
