MS ClearType fonts on Mac

So am I correct that the only way to get a CT
font to work on OSX is to buy it from Ascender?

IIRC they’re all bundled with the latest MS Office for Mac.

Good news. Is MS Office something a Mac user would generally have to pay for, or does it come free/bundled with something-or-other? Also, do the fonts perhaps come with other MS apps for OSX, like Word?

For those with Office 2008 for Mac, or Vista installed on their Mac:
bundled with the software

For those with Office 2004 for Mac:
bundled with an optional Open XML Converter download.

For those without Office, but with a pre-Vista Windows system installed on their Mac:
Available via the Powerpoint 2007 Viewer or the Microsoft Office Compatibility pack.

For those who have neither Office nor a Windows version:
the CT fonts can be purchased via Ascender

Florian, this is great!
The situation is much more hopeful than I thought.
