  • Page 351: Bitmapped And Scalable Fonts

    14 point: Bitmapped and Scalable Fonts The printer uses both bitmapped and scalable fonts. Bitmapped fonts are stored in print memory as predefined patterns of bits that represent a typeface at a specific size, style, and resolution. The following illustration shows an example of a character from a bitmapped font.
  • Page 352 Scalable fonts (also called outline fonts) are stored as computer programs that define the outlines of the characters in the font. Each time you print characters from a scalable font, the printer creates a bitmap of the characters at the point size you choose and saves it temporarily in print memory.
  • Page 353: Resident Fonts

    Different fonts are available in PCL 5/PCL 6. Some of the most popular typefaces, like Courier and TimesNew, are available for all printer languages.
