TrueType/OpenType Fonts and Unicode print data

The TrueType font technology, developed by Apple and Microsoft(TM), is the most prevalent font technology in the industry today. It is an open font standard that is widely published. The OpenType font format is an extension of the TrueType format that allows better support for international character sets, and broader multi-platform support. OpenType includes information needed to fully support Unicode data for multilingual print and presentation using a single font. It also provides the flexibility of allowing either TrueType outlines or the other standard font technology, Adobe Type 1, to be packaged as an OpenType font.
