Family Entry Category Notes
For purposes of determining entry and hanging fees:
Supplementary Fonts: Expert sets, SC/OSF (small-caps/old-style figures) fonts, and other font complements with miscellaneous characters (alternates, ligatures, oldstyle figures, small capitals, or fleurons, etc.) that are normally used as a supplement to ordinary fonts are considered to be part of their respective Type Family or Superfamily. This will also apply to extensive character sets for fonts made in OpenType or AAT (GX) format.
Multiple Masters: Multiple Master typefaces are to be defined by their number of primary instances. Each instance is considered to be equivalent to a constituent style of a Type Family.
Non-Latin Extensions: Non-Latin extensions of Latin typefaces are considered members of their respective Type Family or Superfamily.
Dingbat, Symbol, Pi and Ornament Fonts: Individual dingbat, symbol, and pi or ornament fonts are treated as equivalent to Single Entries.
