The price of the full packages of professional, commercial fonts (Adobe Garamond, Minion, etc.) is far out of the range of what I can afford. So I am wondering if there is no alternative somewhere? If I just need to compile a few LuaLaTeX documents, can this not be done without buying the fonts themselves?
For instance, there are lots of (paid) online TeX compilation services by now. Do you know if any of them have commercial fonts in their system that can be used when compiling documents? A side question: Do you think this would even be legal? (Of course, the fonts would have to stay internally in their system, unaccessible for the users to download.)
