Generic font icon needs extension

I know it must be simple, but how can I give back a font file its' resource fork on OSX? What I mean is, I unstuff a file on OSX 10.3.9 and the font files show up with the generic black icon. The same icon if you have an InDesign file with no extension. Give it an extension and all is well. Font Book doesn't recognize the "extensionless" font.

Help and thank you.

Are you using the latest version of StuffIt Expander? One version of StuffIt has problems with resource forks -- try upgrading to the latest version if you haven't already.

That didn't seem to help, although I have a new version of Stuffit now!
I'm having the client resend the font. They .zip'd it instead of .sit it. Maybe that has something to do with it.

That can be a problem. But you can also try and point InDesign to the font file instead of trying to activate the font in FontBook.
