The concepts have not changed and remain useful, IMO, in any discussion
on presentation.  What has changed is the implementation detail so when
I download a new package to my PC, then it will apply to all Fonts, within
a Typeface, as opposed to having a separate module for each Font.
(Incidentally, my bibles all relate to laser printing ie to modern technology
and have nothing to do with lead:-).

But more significantly, as other posts have clarified for me, this thread
is nothing to do with fonts but with type definition languages, so perhaps
it should be 'type/*'.
