    True and Open.

    Googled -

    Adobe and Microsoft decided to produce one font format which could hold either a true type font or a postscript font. This is called Open Type. It is essentially a superset of TrueType. Any TrueType font is a valid Open Type font, but Open Type fonts can also contain postscript. Anything that supports Open Type will not require converting between PostScript and True Type.
