The terms font and typeface are not quite synonyms. To a professional typesetter, a font is a specific typeface at a specific size. In computing, however, the distinction is often lost because the user can resize any typeface at will. But for the purposes of this article, a typeface is a character set having a particular styled appearance, regardless of size or attributes such as italic or bold. A typefont, or just font, is a typeface of specific size and attribute, such as 12-point italic Helvetica. A point is 1/72 of an inch. Common typefonts used with personal computers are the italic and bold variants of the Times Roman, Arial, Chicago, and Courier New typefaces, but there are literally hundreds of specialized fonts that can be added to the menu of those available for use with word processors, Web browsers, and other software.
