Single-Font Solution

Both Sybase, Inc. and IBM chose Monotype's WorldType solution for inclusion in a variety of their products. A database developer with an international clientele, Sybase required a single Unicode font that supported every character in the Unicode 3.0 standard. In contrast, IBM required that the font support a large number of new and legacy character sets to be used in its broad range of hardware and software products, including OS/2 Wrap products. The effectiveness of the single-font solution lies in the fact that it provides broad Unicode coverage while avoiding the added complexity needed to handle multiple font modules.

Further Consideration

Because of the global language coverage of WorldType fonts, applications can display text in languages not ordinarily supported by the software platform. Multiple-font solutions can typically offer a higher degree of typograhic sophistication (e.g. alternative glyphs). With newer technologies, however, it is now becoming possible to offer these features within a single font solution. Used judiciously, either the single-font or multiple-font solution can effectively provide the Unicode support needed by the customer. Monotype can provide any font solution with full Unicode 3.0 compliance.
