bitmap


Bitmap fonts consist of pixels representing the image of each glyph in each face and size (as opposed to outline fonts).

Hinting, or screen optimising, is the process by which TrueType or PostScript fonts are adjusted for maximum readability on computer monitors. This text compares different ways of hinting (black & white, grey-scale, ClearType, DirectWrite), and explains the behaviour of fonts under different rasterisers.
