I have been using fonts for awhile now and have just been realizing that the different formats do different things.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the differences are and when I would want to use the different kinds?

Thanks!

OpenType Fonts (otf) allow for more user friendly options such as ligatures etc. OpenType allows for a lot more options in fonts and you should use that format if available.

It’s a long article.

Is that what you meant?
