puzzled by sys:fonts

I was looking at my fonts just now, wanting to fix a problem involving missing Chinese characters.

I've been using Amigas since 1956, and had many an occasion to look at fonts/ in those years. I can' t understand why I never noticed before that both the _ttf drawer and the TrueType drawer contain only fonts with the .ttf or .TTF suffix! And the "type" column for both has "Ttf." I really thought those drawers contained different kinds of fonts.

So now I also wonder: Why in the world two drawers?

Wow! long time user, 59 years!!!!

I you look at a clean install there is only _TrueType, _Ttf is probably added by a 3rd party peogram. looking at the fonts in there I'd guess at a browser.

Yes, should only be _TrueType, that's where they are installed by TypeManager. It doesn't really matter though, as long as the .otag points to the correct location.

Lol.

He would have been installing actual font cases in real drawers back then. Maybe his workbench is still going strong.

IIRC _ttf drawer is created if you use (as Severin suggested) OWB/Odyssey's 'Download Fonts' script to install "standard" webfonts (arial, comic, courier....) so some pages using such fonts renders/looks fine.

1956, 1986. Thirty years is a tiny mistake in the millions of years we've been here. Not that big an error in my 80 years either, and I make them pretty regularly now.
