Fonts and Scalable Fonts

There are two types of fonts available, and these fonts are distinguished by the type of data from which they are formed.
Bitmapped fonts
Scalable fonts

Bitmapped Fonts

Each character of bitmapped fonts are composed of a grid of small dots and stored in the machine's memory in dot matrix format.
Bitmapped fonts are fixed in size and specified by characteristics called attributes, such as typeface, stroke weight, style and so on. Various types of bitmapped fonts are produced by the combination of these attributes.

Scalable Fonts

With scalable fonts, characters are freely enlarged or compressed from the one point to any size you wish in 0.1 point increments.
