Steven--

Thanks for providing better information than I did. I did a quick search of
the Adobe site for references to Optima, but no luck. You've jogged my
memory, though; I believe my information was based on the opinion that,
because Optima was designed as a combination of serif and san serif fonts,
it would be a good candidate for a document that needed to be both print and
online but use the same font.

Someone else commented that Optima is not a font commonly found on end user
systems. For this reason, Optima is not a good choice for online help or
web documents, but could be viable in a pdf document, where the display font
doesn't depend on the user's system.
