OpenType Info

OpenType Language Support

Unicode is the standard for OpenType character encoding. It allows multiple language character sets without duplication of glyph data, which pools glyphs that used to be duplicated in the previous versions of Type 1 and TrueType fonts. This can significantly reduce the size of a single OpenType font in comparison to the individual language dependent fonts. The expansion of character sets within an OpenType font is independent of the outline type (PostScript or TrueType). In Unicode™ the positions of International characters are standardized (Euro, Liter, etc.).
