|Technical details||The `.otf` (OpenType Font) format, co-developed by Microsoft and Adobe, is a scalable font format enhancing TrueType and PostScript Type 1 fonts. OTF fonts are resizable without quality loss and include advanced typographic features like ligatures and small caps, accommodating complex and non-Latin scripts. These fonts, rich in glyphs, are based on either CFF (Compact Font Format) for smaller file sizes and sharp screen rendering, or TrueType outlines.
OTF is Unicode-compliant for multi-language support, cross-platform compatible, and includes a Variable Font format for various styles within a single file. It also supports font-specific DRM for controlled licensing. Widely used in both digital and print typography, OTF fonts are integral in PDFs and other document formats, favored by graphic designers and digital content creators for their flexibility and comprehensive typographic features.|
