The name for the generic font format which contains TrueType, OpenType, Apple s bitmap only, X11 s bitmap only, obsolete typ1 fonts and Adobe s SING fonts (and no doubt others). The SFNT format describes how font tables should be laid out within a file. Each of the above formats follow this general idea but include more specific requirements (such as what tables are needed, and the format of each table).
