2.1.1381 Part 1 Section 21.1.2.3.7, latin (Latin Font)

a. The standard includes panose as an optional attribute of this element.

Office does not implement the panose attribute.

b. The standard states that the charset attribute of the buFont, cs, ea, font, latin and sym elements specifies the most similar character set.

Office uses this attribute to specify the character set that is supported by the parent font. This information may be used in font substitution logic to locate an appropriate substitute font when this font is not available. This information is determined by querying the font when present and shall not be modified when the font is not available.

The value of this attribute shall be interpreted as follows:

Value

Description

0x00

Specifies the ANSI character set. (IANA name iso-8859-1)

0x01

Specifies the default character set.

0x02

Specifies the Symbol character set. This value specifies that the characters in the Unicode private use area (U+FF00 to U+FFFF) of the font should be used to display characters in the range U+0000 to U+00FF.

0x4D

Specifies a Macintosh (Standard Roman) character set. (IANA name macintosh)

0x80

Specifies the JIS character set. (IANA name shift_jis)

0x81

Specifies the Hangul character set. (IANA name ks_c_5601-1987)

0x82

Specifies a Johab character set. (IANA name KS C-5601-1992)

0x86

Specifies the GB-2312 character set. (IANA name GBK)

0x88

Specifies the Chinese Big Five character set. (IANA name Big5)

0xA1

Specifies a Greek character set. (IANA name windows-1253)

0xA2

Specifies a Turkish character set. (IANA name iso-8859-9)

0xA3

Specifies a Vietnamese character set. (IANA name windows-1258)

0xB1

Specifies a Hebrew character set. (IANA name windows-1255)

0xB2

0xDE

0xEE

Specifies an Eastern European character set. (IANA name windows-1250)

0xFF

Specifies an OEM character set not defined by the standard.

Any other value

Application-defined, may be ignored.

c. The standard states that the pitchFamily attribute of the buFont, cs, ea, font, latin and sym elements specifies the most similar font family.

In Office, the pitchFamily attribute specifies the font pitch as well as the font family for the corresponding font. Because the value of this attribute is determined by a byte variable this value shall be interpreted as follows:

Value

Description

0x00

DEFAULT PITCH + UNKNOWN FONT FAMILY

0x01

FIXED PITCH + UNKNOWN FONT FAMILY

0x02

VARIABLE PITCH + UNKNOWN FONT FAMILY

0x10

DEFAULT PITCH + ROMAN FONT FAMILY

0x11

FIXED PITCH + ROMAN FONT FAMILY

0x12

VARIABLE PITCH + ROMAN FONT FAMILY

0x20

DEFAULT PITCH + SWISS FONT FAMILY

0x21

FIXED PITCH + SWISS FONT FAMILY

0x22

VARIABLE PITCH + SWISS FONT FAMILY

0x30

DEFAULT PITCH + MODERN FONT FAMILY

0x31

FIXED PITCH + MODERN FONT FAMILY

0x32

VARIABLE PITCH + MODERN FONT FAMILY

0x40

DEFAULT PITCH + SCRIPT FONT FAMILY

0x41

FIXED PITCH + SCRIPT FONT FAMILY

0x42

VARIABLE PITCH + SCRIPT FONT FAMILY

0x50

DEFAULT PITCH + DECORATIVE FONT FAMILY

0x51

FIXED PITCH + DECORATIVE FONT FAMILY

0x52

VARIABLE PITCH + DECORATIVE FONT FAMILY

This information is determined by querying the font when present and shall not be modified when the font is not available. This information may be used in font substitution logic to locate an appropriate substitute font when this font is not available.

d. The standard states that the typeface attribute of the buFont, cs, ea, font, latin and sym elements specifies the typeface of the font to be used for a bullet.

Office uses this typeface attribute for all text when a typeface is available, and uses font substitution logic when the typeface is not available.
