In reading other posts I see that there is more information about the font that I can give.
Font Name: eurofurence light
Version: 4.0 2000-03-28
True Type Outlines
I installed it via Control Panel/Appearance/Fonts.
I have scrolled all the way to the bottom of the Indesign font list and slowly checked the whole list several times to see if it located in a special place on the list.

It's possible the font has some defect that is preventing it from showing up in ID. You could try copying it into the Fonts folder in the InDesign program folder.
Thank you Peter.
Where is the fonts folder for InDesign 2.0 running on Vista?
I have tried putting a copy of the font in
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\InDesign
Where else would you suggest placing the font?
This is a font that I downloaded for free. It is avaliable from various websites.
The font works fine in Microsoft applications.
How can I tell if the propblem that I am having is because the font is defective?
The InDesign fonts folder will be a subfolder of wherever InDesign is installed under program files. I suspect the default location would have been C:\Program Files\Adobe InDesign 2.0\Fonts\ or somethig very similar.
I'm not an expert on the inner workings of fonts. It's possible there is some missing data in the font, for example, but I couldn't begin to tell you how to check.
Just to check, I downloaded the font and installed it on Windows 7. It does show up in CS5.5, and in ID 2 running under the XP virtual machine it is the very last font on the list of Roman fonts, just above the oreintal fonts group.
Thank you Peter,
I tried downloading the files again from several different site and installed them into my WIndows/Fonts folder. Then low and behold the font was just where you said it would be.
Interestingly, the some aspects of the font that I have on my computer are slightly different from the font on my graphic artist's computer--curious.
