Typeface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2474 words)
The term typeface is often conflated with font, a term which, historically, had a number of distinct meanings prior to the advent of desktop publishing; these terms are now effectively synonymous when discussing digital typography.
As the range of typeface designs increased and requirements of publishers broadened over the centuries, fonts of specific weight (flness or lightness) and stylistic variants—most commonly regular or roman as distinct to italic, as well as condensed) have led to font families, collections of closely-related typeface designs that can include hundreds of styles.
Monospace fonts are typefaces in which every glyph is the same width (as opposed to variable-width fonts, where the "w" and "m" are wider than most letters, and the "i" is narrower).
