A cross-platform font file format jointly developed by Adobe and Microsoft, OpenType is an extension of the TrueType sfnt format that can now support OpenType CFF font data and new typographic features. OpenType fonts containing OpenType CFF outlines have an.otf file name suffix, while those with TrueType outlines may have a.otf,.ttf or.ttc file name suffix. OpenType fonts with OpenType CFF outlines use the “Compact Font Format” or CFF to store those outlines. In Windows 2000, XP, and Vista, one can double-click on an OpenType font to get a sample sheet that indicates what kind of outlines the font file has.

Explanation: The other 'missing' fonts are accessible by using the bold and italic style buttons in each application. There are two ways to tell which fonts are linked to which. • Use the Adobe Web site. Go to and navigate to the font package that contains the fonts in question.
Click on the specific font in the package to get to the Web page that shows the full character set for that font. Click the 'More Info' tab. Towards the bottom of the column, the 'Windows/PC Menu Name' is listed. This shows both how the font is listed in the menu of Windows applications, and which additional style buttons are needed to access the font.

Two lines below this is an entry that says 'Typeface name'; this is the name that shows in the font menu. Being able to directly pick the style-linked fonts (the bold and italic) is possible in only a few Windows applications, specifically ones that bypass the operating system for their font-handling (including Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign). In typical Windows applications, there is no way other than the style link to access the style-linked fonts.
They don't show up in the menu on their own. If you want to get to the fonts that can be accessed by the bold and italic buttons in these applications, the only way to access them is by use of these 'stylings'; there is no alternative. Using style links does have the limitation that in most applications, if no actual style-linked font exists, the Windows OS will provide a simulated approximation, with no warning that your 'base font' is simply being slanted or double-struck to approximate italics or bold.
Without close inspection (by zooming in or printing out), it can be difficult to tell the difference on screen. As long as there is a style link, and the linked font is available, the real, style-linked font will be used in the document and in print. Adobe packages its OpenType fonts so that they will get the correct icon when unpacked. In OS 8 and 9, the file Type and Creator codes are used in conjunction with the Mac OS Desktop DB file to assign correct icons to files. If the Type and Creator codes are incorrect or missing, or the Desktop DB is corrupt or damaged, icons may not display properly.
Additionally, moving OpenType fonts from other operating systems, such as Windows or Unix, may damage or eliminate the Mac OS resource fork, which contains the Type and Creator codes, and custom icons. The standard OpenType icon is seen from the Type 'sfnt' and the Creator 'ATMC'.
