(XEROX PARC) The body of knowledge dealing with the construction and use of new
fonts (e.g. for window systems and typesetting software). It has been said that
fontology recapitulates file-ogeny.
Unfortunately, this reference to the embryological dictum that "Ontogeny
recapitulates phylogeny" is not merely a joke. On the Macintosh, for example,
System 7 has to go through contortions to compensate for an earlier design error
that created a whole different set of abstractions for fonts parallel to "files"
and "folders" - ESR
