conflicting senses[edit]

In addition to font types, PostScript specifications also defined the Core Font Set, which dictates the minimum number of fonts and character sets to be supported by each font.

Fonts to be supported by each font? Is the specification recursive? —Tamfang (talk) 18:29, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

I've added a comma for clarification.--Oneiros (talk) 21:04, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

precise font names[edit]

The precise font names are: "AvantGarde-Book", "AvantGarde-BookOblique", [etc etc]

The edit summary says these are "Needed". Why? —Tamfang (talk) 06:47, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

I removed those, the exact names are only needed if you're directly working on an implementation; in that case you better just get the original specs --DieBuche (talk) 10:07, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
