Using OpenType Fonts
This section describes what you need to use OpenType Fonts for printing with InfoPrint Manager.
These fonts offer many benefits over printing with standard font resources. They provide users with these benefits:
- A wide range of non-Latin typefaces from which to choose
- A multilingual presentation environment through the support of Unicode
- A migration path towards a single font technology across all presentation environments
OpenType Fonts have these three characteristics in the font file:
- A Microsoft Unicode version of Version 3 Release 1.
- Microsoft Unicode Full Font Names
- A Unicode character map (CMAP)
A CMAP defines the mapping of code points to glyph indices, which are used to index the actual character shape information.
Note: You can use the standard AFP code pages you use for other font resources with OpenType fonts. For more information about doing this task, see Using OpenType Fonts in an AFP System.
