I do a lot of publishing & photography works & I often need to create custom fonts for myself. While creating fonts you have to remember that there are 2 common types of fonts that are used – TrueType Fonts & PostScript Fonts .
But there is now a third type – OpenType Fonts . People are still embracing the new OpenType Font formats & standards. It allows anyone to create their own fonts, download them, install them into their document processing softwares, digital imaging softwares & deploy them across multiple different systems (they are "portable" from one platform to another like a PDF).
