New Blog by Adobe's Program Manager for Fonts

Thomas Phinney, Program Manager for Fonts and Core Technology at Adobe, recently launched a new blog, called Typblography. One of his first posts describes Adobe's phasing out of Type 1 fonts in favor of their more recent font technology, OpenType, which is cross-platform and supports up to 64,000 glyphs (single characters) in a single font file. He states, "from a technical perspective, Type 1 is a thoroughly obsolete format."
