OpenType format information

The fundamental advantage of this format is its independence from platforms, support of international character sets and expanded typographic possibilities.
 Each individual OpenType font contains all of the font information. The outlines, metrics, bitmap data are all in one data file, which can be installed on both PCs and Macs, so document interchangeability is maintained across different applications.
Thanks to Unicode indexing, displaying of multi-language materials is simpler than ever, because each accented symbol or special character has its own position. It’s therefore not necessary to install several localised versions of a single font at once to ensure correct displaying of multi-language texts. Positions for 65 000 glyphs in a single typeface can cover not only all world languages, but also for example small capitals, non-lining figures, fractions, ligatures or alternative characters.
