What is the .FONT File Extension?

.FONT File Extension Description:

The extension file FONT is used by the UNIX Font Data. The data in the FONT file extension are stored in a font file cache. This file storage presents a summary on the fonts' characteristics pertaining to the UNIX server being utilized. The summary contains relevant information pertaining to fonts that used, when connection to a Web site or Web page is done.

The font cache contains files, depending on the UNIX version of the server and its font path. The files with the FONT file extensions are stored in a standard format of four letters with a hyphen, followed by a four hexadecimal number, and created for the font path and server identification, like 'Mwfc-6de1.font'. From this font file saved in the FONT file extension, proper identification of the font file information is established.

When creating font cache files using Internet Explorer running on UNIX (which doesn't contain well-matched font cache files), the Internet Explorer will read all font data coming in from the server, and it will produce a fresh font cache file. The fresh font cache file might not be saved in the exact folder as the other font cache files that are set to default. However, before the Internet Explorer decides to make a new font folder, it looks at all the font files, which are commonly found with the .font file extension. Only when there is no folder for the specific font, will the creation of a fresh font cache file be done.

During Internet Explorer's installation, the path for the font cache is created, and it is provided with complete access. However, removal and updating of the font file cache might be prevented. Usually, the creation of the file cache that contains the font data with the FONT file extension, are in the installation directory, and when access to the folder is denied, Internet Explorer will write the font cache files in the tmp folders instead. The user may also consider manual distribution of font files.
