Message 1: IPA font for Mac OS 10.3

Subject: IPA font for Mac OS 10.3

Can anyone recommend a good, and hopefully not too expensive, IPA font
for a Mac running OS 10.3? The SIL fonts I used to use in OS 9 don't
seem to work under OS 10. I've tried using ITC Stone Sans, but it's
not really adequate even for representing English, as it lacks a velar
nasal or any central vowels.

Alternatively, if it is possible to use the SIL fonts in OS 10, can
anyone tell me how?
