InnoTek Font Engine InnoTek Font Engine

The InnoTek Font Engine for OS/2 (powered by Freetype 2) is a port of the Freetype 2 font engine to the OS/2 Warp platform providing a tight integration with the OS/2 graphics subsystem. It is designed to be able to replace the OS/2 font rendering subsystem for selected (certified) applications.

The benefits of the Freetype library compared to the default OS/2 font engine can be summarized as follows:

  • - greatly improved font rendering quality for both TrueType and Adobe Type 1 outline fonts
  • - 8-bit (256 color) anti-aliasing for smoother font display
  • - optional subpixel rendering for LCD screens
  • - better support for displaying Unicode font data
  • - more accurate character spacing
  • - flexible configuration options such as configurable anti-aliasing, hinting and font mapping
  • - enhanced APIs going beyond the capabilities of the OS/2 graphics subsystem (such as glyph outline query support)

The font rendering quality improvements achieved by using InnoTek's font engine with Mozilla are so remarkable that every user will immediately enjoy the benefits of using the product.

 Due to the more sophisticated font engine and the high quality 8-bit anti-aliasing combined with InnoTek's full alpha-blending blitting engine, the font rendering performance of InnoTek's font engine will not match the performance of OS/2's built in monochrome engine. However, InnoTek has performed a great deal of performance optimizations and in real life scenarios, the performance difference should be very minor.
