The article presents information on the release of a version of Adobe Font Folio, which features the Adobe Type Library in OpenType format on one CD-ROM. The new software contains more than 2,000 fonts in OpenType format, which allows for richer linguistic support and more advanced typographic control in any print, Web or dynamic media project. Adobe also announced the availability of a new special version with a 10-computer license, making it more affordable for small design shops to access the entire Adobe Type Library. Adobe and Microsoft created the OpenType font format to improve cross-platform document portability and simplify font management, by introducing one font file that works on both the Macintosh and Windows platform. Creative professionals benefit from extended foreign language support and the inclusion of expert typographic features, such as small caps, old style figures and swashes, in many OpenType fonts. The typefaces include standard workhorse text faces and innovate display faces. OpenType fonts can be used alongside existing PostScript Type 1 and TrueType fonts and are natively supported in Mac OS X, Windows 2000 and XP. A standard 20-computer license version of the software costs £7, 479.
