What you describe is how most modern apps deal with type
Yes, I realize that: I was trying, though, to make some sense of Type 1 PS fonts (presumably introduced by Adobe) and the early TrueType fonts, which were introduced by Apple Computing (I'm being pedantic, because Apple Corps still exists) and taken up with enthusiasm by Microsoft. According to a Web page by Adobe, 'most' Type 1 PS fonts have either Adobe or Windows encoding, which was interpreted appropriately by ATM; this would explain the uniformity of the character sets pre-Unicode (and after). Unfortunately, it doesn't help Mac or Windows users at all if they can't get at the parts of the set outside what their application allows them to get at. Which brings us back to QuarkXPress 6.5 . . .
