    Why does WinXP think all OpenType files are corrupted?

      First of all, is there a better place to ask this question than this forum?  I looked at the list of forum names, and I didn't see one that I felt was right for my issue.

       

      I'm trying to install an OpenType font in WinXP (Inconsolata).  When I select the file in the font installation dialog, it just says "Unable to install the ... font. The font file may be damaged. Check with your vendor about obtaining a new file."  I'm getting the .otf file from http://www.levien.com/type/myfonts/inconsolata.html. I've also tried http://moorstation.org/typoasis/designers/steffmann/samples/a/albert.htm with the same result. I've tried downloading the file (from Firefox) several times.
