This is an archive file used on Macintosh computers. It stores branched resources and data in the file system as one file. It includes the storage of fonts and convenient loading of data with Macintosh to the Internet to be transferred to other Mac devices. It’s used to import PostScript Type 1 program language data.
This is a format for presenting fonts in PDF files that was initially conceived to store symbols in the Japanese and Chinese languages because it had a 16-bit structure and allowed for more precise adjustment. CID expands the the potential for PostScript by supporting languages that do not have a left-to-right orientation, and by supporting even a vertical mode of orientation.
