I'm going from a distant memory here, but aren't TT fonts a bitmapped type,
while Adobe fonts are vectored? I seem to remember the technical difference
being something similar to that, in concept at least.

In other words, you get what you pay for? :-)

There are actually a lot of really well-done Adobe fonts lurking about on
shareware/freeware sites. Check ftp://hobbes.nmsu.edu/multimedia/fonts for
example...
