AFP font structure
The font structure of FOCA outline and raster fonts is made up of these font components (see Figure 9):
- Coded font
- A coded font consists of a character set and a code page.
- Character set
- A character set specifies characters, character properties, and printing attributes.
- Code page
- A code page defines character IDs and code points.
WorldType outline fonts are organized by subsets and grouped by character blocks as defined by Microsoft Unicode format. Instead of using a character set, WorldType fonts map a code page to a Unicode point or use an extended code page that contains the Unicode point.
