Subject Re: CFF Font Embedding (was Re: Here Comes MXMLC!)
Date Thu, 29 Mar 2012 01:05:13 GMT
Aha... so, as far as I could understand, CFF is different from TTF in that
it uses cubic curves for outlines instead of quadratic. Is there anything
else that is different?
Would this also mean that fonts, originally in OTF (CFF) format can be
compiled right away w/o needing to do some [more] complex math to translate
outlines fairly? If so, that could be a start, well, at least for people
who use CFF for the features built on top of it rather then for it's own
qualities (*sigh* which is another interesting paradox of how originally
good idea turned into disaster...) could continue using it to some extent.
It's also strange that the format exists for almost 10 years, and
is standardized under ISO and no opensource libraries exist for using /
converting it? Sounds fishy, I'd say...

Best.
