Articles > Info Strings

 

 

 

 

Info strings can represent copyright notices, font names, family names, style names, and so on. To keep this table short, the font manufacturer may wish to make a limited set of entries.

 

  • Copyright notice

  • Font family name

  • Font Subfamily name; for purposes of definition, this is assumed to address style (italic, oblique) and weight (light, bold, black, etc.) only. A font with no particular differences in weight or style (e.g. medium weight, not italic and fsSelection bit 6 set) should have the string "Regular" stored in this position

  • Unique font identifier

  • Full font name; this should be a combination of strings "Font family name" and "Font Subfamily name". Exception: if the font is "Regular" as indicated in string "Font Subfamily name", then use only the family name contained in string "Font family name". This is the font name that Windows will expose to users

  • Version string. Must begin with the syntax 'Version n.nn ' (upper case, lower case, or mixed, with a space following the number).
    The string must contain a version number of the following form: one or more digits, followed by a period, followed by one or more digits. The first such match in the string can be used by installation software to compare font versions. Note that some older installers may require the string to start with "Version ", followed by a version number as above

  • Postscript name

  • Trademark; this is used to save any trademark notice/information for this font. Such information should be based on legal advice. This is distinctly separate from the copyright

  • Manufacturer name

  • Designer; name of the designer of the typeface

  • Description; description of the typeface. Can contain revision information, usage recommendations, history, features, etc.

  • URL Vendor; URL of font vendor (with protocol, e.g., http://, ftp://). If a unique serial number is embedded in the URL, it can be used to register the font

  • URL Designer; URL of typeface designer (with protocol, e.g., http://, ftp://)

  • License Description; description of how the font may be legally used, or different example scenarios for licensed use. This field should be written in plain language, not legalese

  • License Info URL; URL where additional licensing information can be found

  • Reserved

  • Preferred Family (Windows only); In Windows, the Family name is displayed in the font menu; the Subfamily name is presented as the Style name. For historical reasons, font families have contained a maximum of four styles, but font designers may group more than four fonts to a single family. The Preferred Family and Preferred Subfamily IDs allow font designers to include the preferred family/subfamily groupings. These IDs are only present if they are different from IDs "Font family name" and "Font Subfamily name"

  • Preferred Subfamily (Windows only); In Windows, the Family name is displayed in the font menu; the Subfamily name is presented as the Style name. For historical reasons, font families have contained a maximum of four styles, but font designers may group more than four fonts to a single family. The Preferred Family and Preferred Subfamily IDs allow font designers to include the preferred family/subfamily groupings. These IDs are only present if they are different from IDs "Font family name" and "Font Subfamily name"

  • Sample text; This can be the font name, or any other text that the designer thinks is the best sample to display the font in

  • PostScript CID findfont name

Description

Contemporary sans serif design, Arial contains more humanist characteristics than many of its predecessors and as such is more in tune with the mood of the last decades of the twentieth century. The overall treatment of curves is softer and fuller than in most industrial style sans serif faces. Terminal strokes are cut on the diagonal which helps to give the face a less mechanical appearance. Arial is an extremely versatile family of typefaces which can be used with equal success for text setting in reports, presentations, magazines etc, and for display use in newspapers, advertising and promotions.
