# 'Installing' a PostScript printer built-in font
There is a
standard set of fonts that has appeared in every PostScript
printer since the second generation of the type. These fonts
(8 families of four text fonts each, and three special-purpose fonts)
are of course widely used, because of their simple availability. The
set consists of:
- Times family (4 fonts) - Palatino family (4 fonts) - New Century Schoolbook family (4 fonts) - Bookman family (4 fonts) - Helvetica family (4 fonts) - Avant Garde (4 fonts) - Courier family (4 fonts) - Utopia family (4 fonts) - Zapf Chancery (1 font) - Zapf Dingbats (1 font) - Symbol (1 font)
All these fonts are supported, for LaTeX users, by the [`psnfss`](http://ctan.org/pkg/psnfss) set of metrics and support files in the file `lw35nfss.zip` on CTAN. Almost any remotely modern TeX system will have some version of [`psnfss`](http://ctan.org/pkg/psnfss) installed, but users should note that the most recent version has much improved coverage of maths with `Times` (see package [`mathptmx`](http://ctan.org/pkg/mathptmx)) and with `Palatino` (see package [`mathpazo`](http://ctan.org/pkg/mathpazo), as well as a more reliable set of font metrics.
The archive `lw35nfss.zip` is laid out according to the
TDS, so in principle, installation consists simply of
unzipping the file at the root of a `texmf` tree.
Documentation of the [`psnfss`](http://ctan.org/pkg/psnfss) bundle is provided in `psnfss2e.pdf` in the distribution.
