Type 1 font

The most widely used type of PostScript font. In Windows, each font is composed of a .PFB and .PFM file, which are stored in the \PSFONTS and \PSFONTS\PFM folders. Sometimes, \PSFONTS is in the \WINDOWS folder (\WINDOWS\PSFONTS). Beginning with Windows 95/98, Adobe Type Manager lets you view the file names under the Properties of each font. For example, the following files make up the Garamond typeface. See PostScript fonts and PostScript.
