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.
