Is there any decompression utility that unstuffs Mac .sit files on a PC keeping fonts intact? Thanks

As far as I know WinZip can decompress .sit files but keeping the font intact???

You can also try StuffIt by Aladdin Systems as well.

Fonts should not be affected by the decompression utility.

If the fonts change, it usually means that you haven't got that particular font on your computer (that's assuming that the file was compressed on a different computer).

I read a recent response that suggested sending the font with the file, can't remember what the technique was but of course you can always include the font file in the zipped package, extract it then load it into the receiving computer.

KK and BT's answers will probably fill your needs but if you still have font transfer problems you should be able to get around that by sending your files as printer files. It's a bit fiddly because you need to know the recipent's make and model of printer. If you want to follow this up there was a thread on this topic about 3 or 4 weeks ago (probably what BT was referring to). A search on PF1 for 'printer file' should find it.
