I would like to purchase some of the Swiss 721 SWA fonts that come with InDesign 3, but cannot find them in the Type listing. How can I buy these?

Swiss 721 SWA fonts were certainly not any of the fonts bundled with any version of any Adobe software. However, those particular fonts are available from Bitstream in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Swiss 721 is Bitstream's version of Helvetica®©, [it is far from
identical] and as Dov said, has never been included with any Adobe
product.

However, it IS included in all recent versions of Corel Graphics Suite
(Corel Draw) at least since Version 11 and possibly earlier. Version
X3 includes over 30 variations of weights, condensation, etc.

Thanks. I have no choice in the matter, and was given a list to find by our parent company.

The entire set of 32 font files, at about $25 per font, is US$800. You
can legally obtain these same fonts, along with hundreds of other
quality bitstream and URW fonts, for substantially less by buying
Corel Graphic Suite X4, list price $429, street price about $350.

The fonts are subject to the same licensing rights and restrictions
whether purchased separately or as part of a package.
