Why do the Bytesize of Fonts Differ?
Posted on 2000-05-08
Tired of hunting fonts on various CD's I'm currently pulling them all together and cutting one CD with ALL my fonts in one place.
In doing so I've discovered an odd phenomina i didn't realise before this exercise: Identical fonts, Identical Name, Identical Version - Different Byte Size and different date!!
Name: Times New Roman Bold (TrueType)
File Size: 67KB
Monotype Corporation PLC
Date: 28/03/96 (UK Date)
Same Info but:
File Size: 179KB
The larger and later file appears no better or worse than the earlier and smaller edition.
Can anybody tell me why?
Not masses of points on this, there must be a simple explaination.
