Good catch - I read right through that, as "I've been using it for decades"
makes me assume it's not the issue, and so I jump past the surface to something
The syntax is:
ttf "fontname.ttf/ttc" "String_of_Text"
Where fontname.ttf or fontname.ttc is the name of the TrueType font file. It is
a quoted string literal or string expression.
Maybe POV-Ray thinks that ArialFont is a string expression - an identifier - and
burps when it's not defined the way it thinks it should be?
Who knows what dark magic lurks in the Balaska scene files...
