OpenType Format
 
 
All Emigre Fonts are shipped in OpenType format.

The OpenType format incorporates typographic features, such as small caps, ligatures, old style numerals and lining numerals, all within one font file, thereby simplifying font management and usage. Accessing these features requires an application which supports OpenType typographic features, such as Adobe InDesign 2+, Quark Express 7+, Photoshop CS or Illustrator CS.

OpenType font files are cross-platform compatible; they work on both Macintosh and Windows platforms. OpenType fonts will work with Macintosh Classic, OS 8.1+ and OS 9.x with Adobe Type Manager 4.6 or higher. (ATM is not needed under OSX and OSX-native applications.) OpenType fonts will work with Microsoft Windows 95 or higher with Adobe Type Manager 4.1 or higher. (ATM is not needed with Windows 2000 or XP.)

Emigre OpenType fonts contain PostScript font outlines. (Also known as OpenType CFF.)
