MacXware on Friday announced the release of
MacFonts 2, a collection of 1,000 fonts that range from classic to designer styles. The collection exclusively uses OpenType — a cross-platform file format for fonts jointly developed by Microsoft Corp. and Adobe Systems Inc. that provides small file sizes, embedding in PDF documents, expanded international character support and other enhancements. MacXware notes that the MacFonts 2 collection comprises an entirely different set of fonts than what was in its previously released MacFonts collection. MacFonts 2 costs US$29.99.
