Heard all the hullaballoo about OpenType®, but bored to death by technical jargon? We don't blame you. Here it is in more human terms: OpenType is the most significant advancement in font technology in recent years. Seriously. It's like the compact disc to the cassette tape. The DVD to the VHS. This new format offers type users unprecedented power and flexibility.

With OpenType, multiple platforms (Mac and PC), multiple fonts (small caps, expert, various figure sets) and multiple languages (Western, Cyrillic, and Greek) can exist in a single font file. Ligature, swash, and alternate characters can be applied automatically. Each font can hold thousands of extra characters, vastly enhancing your typography toolset.
