He wasn't talking about document creation, he was talking about printing, for 
which he is right on the money.  If you used Word Perfect 5 for DOS, you were 
limited to the fonts your printer supported.  If you used Geoworks, or 
Ghostscript (I used a retail package called "GOSCRIPT"), or Win 3.1, you could 
use any font you want and the print subsystem would just rasterize it as graphics.
