Description Roozbeh Pournader 2006-11-19 23:38:20 UTC
The OpenType standard, when talking about the name table at the following address: http://www.microsoft.com/typography/otspec/name.htm Mentions the following: "Font Subfamily name. The Font Subfamily name distiguishes the font in a group with the same Font Family name (name ID 1). This is assumed to address style (italic, oblique) and weight (light, bold, black, etc.). A font with no particular differences in weight or style (e.g. medium weight, not italic and fsSelection bit 6 set) should have the string "Regular" stored in this position." But the regular DejaVu fonts have "Book" here, contrary to the standard recommendation that they should use "Regular".
