End user perspective - compliance workflows
To improve our validation process for font compliance, I'd welcome any insight to collect and collate font data. Currently we cover eight ID items, but this is still not sufficient. For instance, in our typesetter's software workflow Fairbank's name was declared as "FairbankMT Std-Regular". An example with Fairbank is below, we have a similar listing for around 7,000 fonts.
Name: Fairbank MT Std
Family Name: Fairbank MT Std
PostScript Name: FairbankMTStd
Unique Name: Unique Mono - Fairbank MT Std
Format (detailed): OpenType (Flavored)
Version: Version 1.000;PS 001.000;hotconv 1.0.38
License Info URL: NI
We'd like our data to be comprehensive for as many situations as possible, to enable us to be systemic in our processes. Our font data is currently derived from FontExplorer, which I believe does not list every ID – are there better tools for this?
We also have issue determining a good process for LaTeX font naming, as this does not include the same IDs. I am not aware of appropriate metadata / means to collect metadata, besides the file name / font name. Any suggestions?
