What is the difference between a True Type font and an Open Type font?

True and Open. :p

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.
