A font is a particular size, weight and style of a typeface. Each font is a matched set of type, one piece (called a "sort") for each glyph, and a typeface consists of a range of fonts that share an overall design. With the advent of digital typography, font is frequently synonymous with typeface, although the two terms do not necessarily mean the same thing. In particular, the use of "vector" or "outline" fonts means that different sizes of a typeface can be dynamically generated from one design. Each style may still be in a separate "font file" -- for instance, the typeface "Futura" may include the fonts "Futura roman", "Futura italic", "Futura bold" and "Futura extended" —- but the term "font" might be applied either to one of these alone or to the whole typeface.

I've been using phantomjs to convert HTML pages to PDF.  On my Mac, everything was OK.  But, on a Linux environment, the fonts were not rendering properly (particularly web fonts).  There isn't too much out there on this problem, until I finally stumbled upon this github issue: https://github.com/wkhtmltopdf/wkhtmltopdf/issues/45.  (Apparently, the workaround found for wkhtmltopdf also applies to phantomjs).  Anyways, the fix finally ended up to be creating a new file (/etc/fonts/conf.d/100-smoothfonts.conf) with the following contents:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM 'fonts.dtd'>
<fontconfig>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="rgba">
   <const>rgb</const>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="hinting">
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle">
   <const>hintslight</const>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="antialias">
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="lcdfilter">
   <const>lcddefault</const>
  </edit>
 </match>
</fontconfig>

Yeah, I'm using the screen capture ability of phantomjs.  Supported output formats are png, jpeg, gif, pdf.  The phantomjs download page has binaries for the major OSes. Their git repo has a script called "rasterize.js" that I've been using to do the capturing.  Sample usage:
