    I don't think anyone replied to this. As far as I know, these are the only
    applications for Mac OS 9 that can use Windows TrueType fonts:

    1) WorldText, an editor produced by Apple that requires OS 9.1 or later.

    2) SUE (Simple Unicode Editor)

    3) Pepper, a text editor that runs under both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X 10

    4) MLTE Demo, a text editor for OS 9

    5) Possibly jEdit, a Java text editor for programmers, but I cannot get Java
    to work on my OS 9.2.2

    6) Possibly Simredo, a Java text editor, but I cannot get Java to work
