Could you point me references (books & webpages)
about the history & tecnology of font formats ?

Thank you very much_.

Weird, how comes that I can't find how to start a new
thread in 'Build' I'd like to post the same there.

You can try this Emily King piece too:

New Faces: type design in the first decade of device-independent digital typesetting (1987-1997)

http://www.typotheque.com/articles/emily_king.html


It has some background on early Adobe type if I remember rightly.

I moved a folder (an important one) from where it was
to a subfolder of 'posta in arrivo' (coming) to have it
on the top of the interface (Outlook) and it disappered.
I am so sad. Sorry for the off-topic. It was not a folder
with job e-mails. I am so sad.
