Chapter 23. Preferences > Using fonts in Mac OS X

Using fonts in Mac OS X

Just when you thought you had a handle on the Bitmap, TrueType, and PostScript formats, not to mention Adobe Type Manager (ATM), Suitcase, and other font-management utilities, the font world on the Mac was turned upside down. Hopefully, this information will help you navigate through the morass of changes in font storage and management.

By default, Mac OS X installs more than 50 professional-quality fonts. These fonts are in the .dfont format, which is a new variation on the Mac TrueType format. Mac OS X also supports the Mac PostScript Type 1, Multiple Master, Mac and Windows TrueType, and OpenType font formats.
