OpenType…what is it?
These three font formats still exist. One is here to stay, the other two will fade away. While you may not be in a hurry to upgrade a library of 3,000 fonts to a new format, upgrading your favorites or frequently used client fonts is certainly worth it. OpenType is now the font format of choice. Ease of management and implementation. 100% cross-platform compatibility. Larger character sets. Extensive language support. Support for advanced typographic features are some of the benefits of OpenType. Read about these benefits and more in the article An Introduction to OpenType.
