Cross-platform fonts

Working on a document in OpenOffice on the Mac, Windows (occasionally), and Linux works well enough, but sometimes you don't want to use FreeSerif, whatever ideological purity might be found therein. I like Georgia, and Garamond. The following command will, on an Ubuntu box, install the semi-free (as in speech) Microsoft TrueType core fonts, which include Georgia:

$ sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
