This I don't get: 8 years ago, my teacher (a huge Mac fanatic and hater of anything Microsoft) explained to the entire class how bad TTF fonts were. "Don't EVER use them!" he'd bristle, urging us all to use postscript (type 1) fonts.
The reason he gave, was that TTF was not made for printing but for being displayed on screen and that TTF was unreliable for printing. Thing is, since I started graphic design in 2005, a lot of our supplied PDFs were made using TTF fonts and we never ever had any problem. Ever.
So is there actually ANY reason anymore not to use a TTF font? I know some Mac fanatics still foam at the corners of their mouths when it's mentioned because Apple always supported Type 1 but I think my teacher basically taught me a bad and outdated habit dating from the 90s.
