Subject Re: Implementing OpenType font support, how hard?
Date Fri, 04 Aug 2006 07:10:50 GMT
I don't remember exactly but I think there are some fonts which supply
different weight variants without the use of the TTC facility. I guess I
have to dig that up.

BTW, I just stumbled over a patch that was never applied concerning
OTF/CFF. Maybe it's worth to have another look: http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=25999
Looks like I lost track of it after I couldn't apply it properly.
