This is a format for compact font storage in the OpenType system, allowing for the rasterization of text information. It differs from TrueType in its abilities to describe font symbols and with its font structure variation algorithm, depending on the change in size. CFF allows for increased screen clarity with high resolution, but this is not due to the font, but its rasterization.
It belongs to TrueType and OpenType font formats and has analog compression that stores rendering technology. In WOFF it’s possible to store individual metadata with font info. It’s been used since 2010 for the main purpose of storing and transferring fonts on the Internet. It was developed by the Mozilla Foundation.
