Fontamentals, Part II: Screen Fonts Versus Printer Fonts

Windows 98 also characterizes fonts by their intended output device: the screen or the printer:

  • Screen fonts are designed to represent characters on a display screen only.

  • Printer fonts are used by the printer to generate the characters that will appear on the printed page. Windows 98 can work with three kinds of printer fonts:

    Device fonts, which are generated by the printer hardware

    Downloadable soft fonts, which are sent to the printer during a print job

    Printable screen fonts, which can be rendered both onscreen and on the printer
