I'm trying to educate myself about font systems, and I'd like to be able to look at an actual ttf file the way I can look at a metafont file. However when I load the file in a text editor (aquamacs) or in TeXShop I can't make anything out that corresponds to the documentation I found here:
Am I doing something wrong? Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
(More generally, I would like to be able to look at other kinds of font files this way, but I'm starting with ttf. If anyone has any advice, bombs away by all means.)
