Kenten Generic is an OpenType font that is based on the Adobe-Identity-0 ROS (ROS stands for /Registry, /Ordering, and /Supplement, and refers to the /CIDSystemInfo dictionary entries that define the glyph set name for CID-based character collections). The Adobe-Identity-0 ROS is a special-purpose character collection whose use is not tied to a specific language, and Kenten Generic is a special-purpose OpenType font that is intended to be used for typesetting emphasis marks, thus the reason why the Adobe-Identity-0 ROS was chosen as the basis for this OpenType font.


The Kenten Generic OpenType font includes glyphs for the following Unicode scalar values: U+0020, U+2022, U+25B2, U+25B3, U+25C9, U+25CB, U+25CE, U+25CF, U+25E6, U+FE45, and U+FE46. As an OpenType font, the following 15 'sfnt' tables are included: BASE, CFF, DSIG, GSUB, OS/2, VORG, cmap, head, hhea, hmtx, maxp, name, post, vhea, and vmtx.

For those who wish to use the AFDKO makeotf tool to rebuild this OpenType font, the following source files are also provided: cidfont.ps (CIDFont resource), cidfontinfo, UniKentenGeneric-UTF32-H (UTF-32 CMap resource), FontMenuNameDB, and features. The AFM file is also included for good measure. The following makeotf command line was used to build this font:

% makeotf -f cidfont.ps -r -osbOn 7 -osbOn 8 -osbOff 9 -ch UniKentenGeneric-UTF32-H

Note that the 'DSIG' table, which is included in the OpenType font, was added by Adobe Systems' release process.
