A type of font. It is an attempt to merge postscript and truetype fonts into one specification.An opentype font may contain either a truetype or a postscript font inside it. It contains many of the same data tables for information like encodings that were present in truetype fonts. Confusingly it is also used to mean the advanced typographic tables that Adobe and MicroSoft (but not Apple) have added to TrueType. These include things like contextual ligatures, contextual kerning, glyph substitution, etc. And MS Windows uses it to mean a font with a DSIG (Digital Signature) table.

The OpenType™ format is a superset of the earlier TrueType and Adobe® PostScript® Type 1 font formats. As jointly defined by Microsoft and Adobe Systems, it is technically an extension of Microsoft s TrueType Open format, which can contain either PostScript font outlines or TrueType font outlines in a single font file that can be used on both Macintosh and Windows platforms. It can also include an expanded character set based on the Unicode encoding standard plus advanced typographic intelligence for glyph positioning and glyph substitution that allow for the inclusion of numerous alternate glyphs in one font file.

The most recent font format emerged at the beginning of the new millennium. OpenType was initially developed by Microsoft, which were later joined by Adobe. In a few years time it has become the new standard format for digital fonts. The biggest advantages shared by all OpenType fonts are their single file structure, cross-platform compatibility, and advanced typographic functionality. This means any single OpenType font file will work on both Mac and Windowssystems, and some OpenType fonts include expanded character sets and special features like automatic ligaturesand alternate glyphs. OpenType is the best format for most purposes. It comes in PostScript flavor (OTF) and TrueTypeflavor (TTF). While OpenType fonts will work on a basic level in most any application, the advanced features might not be accessible in certain software and older operating systems. See our OpenType page for more details.
