Yes, I did testing on this too and it doesn't synthesis bold or italics. I guess I didn't realize how important that was!

Now I've fallen back to New Century Schoolbook because I have the whole family for that font.

If you want the whole font, including italics, bold and bold-italics, you'll need four files:
  • Regular
  • Bold
  • Italic
  • Bold Italic

So for New Century Schoolbook, I have the files:
  • Century Schoolbook L,
  • Century Schoolbook L, Bold
  • Century Schoolbook L, Bold Italic
  • Century Schoolbook L, Italic

Now to find a good Baskerville.
