Using the configuration file for TrueType fonts
ttdef.fntto support TrueType fonts.
ttdef.fnt file is similar to the
csdef.fnt file. You use the
ttdef.fnt file to map each TrueType font to a known Type 1 or Type 0 font.
The syntax of the
ttdef.fnt file uses the same rules that are defined by the
csdef.fnt, where comments are defined as ‘;'. The
Full Font Name is extracted from the x'02' triplet (FQNType is x'DE') of the Map Data Resource (MDR).
Full Font Name is used to search the
ttdef.fnt and the resource name when issuing the
open_input handler command.
The encoding of the
ttdef.fnt should be UTF-8 to make sure all font names can be rendered within the file. The
familyname must convert to ANSI without any characters lost if aliasing for font name is used.
