{typ1} conerns the Adobe Type 1 font format

The Adobe Type 1 font format was developed for the early laser printers, particularly the Apple LaserWriter which used PostScript () as a page description language. The Type 1 has been replaced by TrueType () and later OpenType (). Type 1 has limitations relative to the newer standard such as being limited to 256 glyphs and not being cross-platform.
