comment Is there no such thing as OCR-B font in bold?
It's not just its roots, its entire purpose is to be optically readable (but more attractive and less machine-like than OCR-A). By definition, a slanted or bold variant would not be OCR.

And the policy has to have teeth. That's a matter for negotiation with the highest level of the bureaucracy that you have access to, but it has to come from the top, or as near to the top as you can get.

comment What's the difference between opentype vs. truetype
Add the very important benefit that OpenType fonts are completely platform-agnostic. Before OpenType, we'd run into endless problems with cross-platform incompatibilities, usually at the worst possible time. In my own work, if an font isn't OpenType I either a) don't use it at all, or b) outline the text before it goes to prepress.

comment Beginner Web Designer
First off, full marks for recognizing that knowing how to use a design tool does not make you a designer. That instantly puts you in an enlightened minority. That said, Farray is correct; there are already good answers to this question. The one he cites is great. See also graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/2167/…, which will help.

If you expand the question a bit, with more information about how these files are put together, you'll have more chance of getting the exact answer you need.

Right on, Horatio. Getting the same fonts is by far the best solution to this issue.
