You can't use SheepShaver or Basilisk?

"Casual" isn't exactly the best font ever, but I definitely prefer it  
to the strange looking "Fancy" or "Simple" which seems to be an  
imitation of the Ultra Light weight of New Helvetica. Of course  
Monaco is on Newton, but I'm not sure anybody likes that dog.

At least its not Comic Sans.

I think this is a good idea, and since alas I do have several Macs  
running OS 9 and below, I'd be happy to help/work on getting this to
